Artist Yvonne Bentley was inspired to paint and draw at a young age by her grandmother who was also an artist. After 40 years working in retail and with her family now grown up, Yvonne has returned to her love of painting.
She works in various mediums such as water colour and oils and her favourite subject is painting the human face. She also dabbles in animal portraits and landscapes .
Earlier this year , along with 15 others , she won a competition to feature in a poster campaign for BBC 's Peaky Blinders . She also completes private commissions for portraits, animals and landscapes. She was once even asked to paint a dragon's eye!
Her work is also available as prints and cards. Contact her for info.
