Medium: Oil Paintings/Pit-Fired Ceramics/Author Publications
Yvonne Pepin-Wakefield, artist and author owns studios in Tieton Washington and The Dalles Oregon. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, and her work is in private collections throughout the world.
At an early age Yvonne built a log cabin in the Oregon Mountains and began her career as a painter. Strapping on a portable French easel she back packs into remote valleys and climbs up rocky mountain sides, often with a cat or small dog as a companion. Working on location during full moon nights and in blustery afternoon storms, her paintings capture and reflect the emotion of the moment. All location paintings are done ala’prima and photographs are never used. Yvonne’s studio work allows for different expressions in a range of media from surrealistic oil paintings to fine ceramic porcelain bowls. Her interactive out-door sculptures are sited in private and public collections.
