Yvonne Chapman Brooks is a world renowned West Australian artist specialising in watercolours and acrylics.
Well known both nationally and internationally, Yvonne has won awards in Australian and American competitions for her textile artwork and wall hangings. The most famous was True Blue Mates, which won prizes in Australia and in the USA, and Carousel which won best use of colour in the Mancuso World of Quilts, USA.
Specialising in watercolours, Yvonne also completes stunning works of art in pastels and natural colourings in her photo-realistic acrylic paintings. She is honoured that her artwork is commissioned and displayed all over the world.
Yvonne loves to paint people’s pets and this is a popular request by those who have lost their beloved pets. While her rainbow backgrounds are admired and unique, she also paints portraits in more natural colourings.
