Yvonne Parker was born and raised in Southern Germany, with a dual nationality, French and German. Her father, an artist, encouraged her to explore multiple media. From age sixteen, she studied porcelain painting in Switzerland and art history in Germany.
In 1985, she moved to the US to live in New York City, where she studied interior design at NYSID. Her art ranges from individual works, complex site-specific installation art to creating total environments for the home. The phrase, “artful living,” expresses how she lives her life. Through her art she creates a world of beauty, romance and peace.
Her “Fragmented Beauty” series, incorporating porcelain and ceramics, has been exhibited throughout the United States. Recent exhibitions included a solo show at “The Armory Art Center,” FL, a museum exhibition at “The Columns,” PA, and was recently exhibited at “Art Palm Beach,” an international, contemporary art fair, FL. The show “Yvonne Parker & Friends” is scheduled for summer 2011 at ArtSpace (PaPA), Pennsylvania.
Yvonne Parker lives with her husband, Ron, in a converted nunnery in Pennsylvania and maintains a studio/winter residence in Florida.
