Yvonne grew up in Pittsburg, PA, and started drawing as a young girl. She studied at Ivy School of Professional Art in Pittsburg before launching a career focused on commissioned portraiture on the east coast. Yvonne recently moved to Boulder, Colorado to focus on her signature work. Captivated by the colors and the brilliance of the Rocky Mountain West, Yvonnne's style combines layers upon layers of color and movement, resulting in a unique depth, vibrancy and vitality in her pieces. She has a profound love for animals - which can often be felt in her work as she captures their moods, their spirits, and their personalities. You will find Yvonne's work in fine galleries.
Yvonne is now joining with Big Sky Ranch Bed and Biscuit to offer custom portraits. Yvonne welcomes pet portraits as well as family portraits.
Big Sky Ranch Bed and Biscuit has partnered with Yvonne Kozlina and Ann T. Weaver, to offer you custom portraits of your pets and/or family. Pricing is available upon request.
"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." ~ Anatole France
