A native born Texan, who has lived in El Paso most of her life. Yvonne Postelle has been a painter for most if not the entirety of her adult life. Growing up She was always one for the creative and interesting indifferent art forms. She played the Clarinet in the school band, while also being a consistent doodler. She was always drawing. As an adult, she found that painting was a way to express herself and relax. The love she has found in a paint brush is a big indescribable one.
On a life changing trip to France, Yvonne had the incredible opportunity to roam around the city where Claude Monet once walked, Giverny, France. This truly blessed trip motivated and renewed a deep interest in Monet's technique and impressionism. While visiting museums, She was always drawn to the old master exhibità, especially Claude Monet. The exquisite colors and the mastery techniques made a huge impression on her.
Inspiration comes from her travels abroad and through out the United States. When she sees a landscapes, and in the process of planning to paint it, there is always a sensational feeling, a moment in time. Something captivates her and stirs this feeling inside, one that tells her, she must create.
I have and always will be inspired by the world I live in. I believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I see and find beauty in everything around me. I think that variety is the spice of life. In my travels I have found variety in beautiful landscapes. I document my travels and experiences by painting the sensational scenery around me. I work primarily in oil as a landscape painter. The love of art has been a constant passion as long as I can remember. Through my paintings I love to show how God and nature inspire me with vibrant and dancing colors, bringing life to the most common objects.
