Yvonne Reddick is known for her skillful use of layers of transparent and opaque pigments to achieve paintings that appear lit from within. Communicating her heart with her paintbrush, she passionately conveys on canvas what is bubbling up inside of her. As each layer of colour requires time to dry she moves from one creation to the next, having several paintings in process in her studio.

While spending time travelling in Italy, Reddick was emotionally stirred and deeply inspired by the beauty of the old world paintings and sculptures, particularly those from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Accepting an invitation from renowned Canadian artist David Langevin, Yvonne spent several years studying under him in the master-apprentice tradition.

Since 2007 when she was invited to be represented by some of the Fine Art Galleries in Canada, she has been working full time at her craft. She continues to study and apply the techniques of the European Old Masters such as Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Titian and Vermeer.

Reddick paints a wide variety of genres. Initially her signature subject matter being still life, her famous ‘pear’ paintings and intimate scenes of a latte or cup of tea with a newspaper or book quickly became widely popular. For the past several years her landscape paintings, evoking a variety of exquisite vistas from a warm, vibrant sunset to the deep blues and greens of the ocean, have also been collected internationally.

Yvonne grew up in beautiful, pastoral, Prince Edward County on the North shore of Lake

Ontario, and for most of her adult life has lived in the mountainous interior of British Columbia.

She credits both of these stunning and romantic places with having a strong influence on her

creativity. Her walk-in studio where she spends time at her easel is in the heart of downtown

Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. As a leading art educator in this area she also offers

classes at the studio and is honoured to teach the techniques of the Old Masters to a range of

artists from beginner to professional.

"With great skill, Reddick renders her art works into delectable, sensuous visions. She patiently

builds her oil paintings so that each work is made up of many layers of paint. Consequently,

they seem to glow with light and achieve a depth and intensity of saturated colour."

(Kamloops Public Art Gallery Curator)
