Born in 1966 in Palm Springs, California, Yvonne Petty currently lives in Salem, Oregon. She is a third generation artist who specializes in pen and ink art work, which leans towards a realism style. Most of her work is created using the method of stippling, one well-placed dot at a time.
Yvonne studied graphic design and photography in college but considers herself to be a self-taught artist who spent seven years learning her medium before going professional in 2014. In the last three years, Yvonne has become a regular artist at a few art shows, including adding to that list Western Art Association’s Western Art Show, Cattlemen’s Western Art Show, Art at the Classics and Women in Art Show.
Yvonne is a member of the Institute of Equine Artists and the prestigious Society of Animal Artists. Most of Yvonne’s work is sold while it is being created and can be found in private collections in the U.S. and Canada. Yvonne posts ongoing projects on Facebook and Instagram.
