Yvette’s current paintings have come from a deeper awareness of who we are beyond the human condition. They reflect our true nature as the freedom of being.

“I love the creative energy that opens from within and being able to have a painting come from that space. It is the best feeling. A work of art is completed when it is hanging on the wall of its new owner. The artwork is then released to the world. People who have bought my art have connected to them from a feeling. It’s immediate.
My purpose for creating art is to pass through a sense of something bigger. A sense of who we are. We may have challenges in a lifetime but beyond that is the true essence of who we are. This we have in common with one another. We might feel or believe at times we are separate to each other but this is not true. Sometimes it takes an entire lifetime to realise this. We have a purpose to be here and to be here together. I love when my art is received beyond what can be seen on the canvas or worked out in the mind. It just is. I love to allow the energy of who we are to come through the painting and touch the heart of people. It brings joy to my heart.”

Yvette’s current paintings have come from a deeper awareness of who we are beyond the human condition. They reflect our true nature as the freedom of being. The world, personalities, emotions, thoughts, stories, the body, and mind, and all of the content are only passing energies. They come and they go. But what is always here which never comes and goes and is aware of all this passing content? It is our essential nature. It is the source of our being. We are the awareness that all this takes place in.
Yvette is enjoying her current style of paintings. Her works have evolved from vibrant and bold abstract paintings, to abstract landscapes and now to abstract and abstract landscapes that reflect the freedom of being.
Yvette currently offers Abstract Painting Half Day and Day Classes as well as Meditation Classes in Sydney. Please go to the Workshops page at Art Lovers Australia for more information.
