Yvonne Carol-Pearce was born in the Netherlands. She came to South Africa as a little girl, completed her education in South Africa - matriculated and completed her NTC 4,(National Technical Certificate), in technical drawing.
Ever since she can remember she has had a love for nature and animals (especially the Leopard family) and that has had a great influence on her becoming a Wildlife Artist. She is self taught and has been painting professionally for plus minus 15 years. She works in oil, acrylic and pastels. She has done a vast amount of commissions and exhibitions, in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Knysna and George as well as the USA and England. She was commissioned to do a calendar for the new Millennium. Her paintings are hanging all over the world, Europe, USA, the East, Australia, just to mention a few.
She is a dedicated conservationist, and contributes towards conservation projects through donations of paintings, she feels indebted to the beautiful animals she paints for their inspiration.
Yvonne used to live in the Johannesburg area and frequently paid visits to the game parks. She believes that only through the lengthy process of observing from life that she can understand her subjects well enough to paint them convincingly. She approaches her art with modesty and apparent ease, resulting in her exquisitely detailed paintings of the animal kingdom and the endangered species.
Yvonne is at present residing in George, on the beautiful Garden Route of the Cape, where she has a Art Studio/Gallery, which is open 7 days a week. Commissions are welcome!
