Yvonne Auld


1. After studying painting and textile design at Ulster College of Art and Design, Yvonne worked successfully in studios in London as a textile designer, before freelancing. 2. On moving to Wiltshire in the 1980’s she started to paint full time, with her holidays at home and abroad, her garden and walks in the countryside constantly providing sources of inspiration. 3. Yvonne works in a variety of media and on different themes according to her current interests. Sketches and preliminary drawings are essential to her approach and colour, light, form and texture are strong underlying principles. Her works include a rich mix of realistic and semi-abstract paintings in mixed media, acrylic and on silk. 4. Her work has been shown widely, for instance at the Mall Galleries and the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in London; the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol; Victoria Gallery and Rooksmoor Gallery, Bath; and the Handel House Gallery in Devizes. 5. Her work is now to be found in collections as far apart as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Hong Kong and America. 6. Yvonne is a member of the Calne Artists Group and of Bath Textile Artists.
