Hello my name is Yvonne, above you see me at one of the many shows and craft fairs I attend to sell my pots.
Just a bit of background - I live in Altham with my partner Matt, who has also just started on the self employed road as a musician, currently working in a music shop in Huddersfield. We
share our home with our cat Poppy.
I have always loved painting however the first 30 years of my working life was spent in a bank and the last twentyfour years travelling to Bradford where my company was
Some years ago Matt and I got an idea that we would like to travel America in a motorhome so in 2009 I took early retirement and we used the lump sum to help fund our dream. We spent from
May 2010 to May 2011 travelling the length and breadth of the USA. We had the most amazing time. If you want to read more or know about how we did it, we will soon have a website and presentation
dedicated to our trip.
When we returned, neither of us wanted to continue doing what we had previously done. Matt had taught himself how to play banjo and is becoming very accomplished on this, so he has made a
career change into the music world. Me - I have taken my craft from a hobby, doing a few fairs a year, to full time, giving mainly talks and demomnstrations. For details of up and coming talks and
fairs, please see the events page.
