Artist Yvette St. Amant
French-Canadian born, Yvette St. Amant’s passion for art developed at a very young age. From the age of four she would create on a withered old picnic table every summer at her parent’s cottage on Rainy Lake, Ontario. After many moves as a child her parents settled in Thunder Bay, Ontario where she grew up and eventually studied Fine Arts at Lakehead University, completing her BFA in 1996. Her artist career started in her 20’s, painting and drawing large scale animals and exhibiting them in Ontario, and Vancouver, BC. By the age of thirty, Yvette found her niche producing decorative and trend forward art within the home décor industry, publishing and licensing to retailers and manufacturers globally.
Positivity, self-care, journey and femininity are at the heart of the themes explored in her artwork. Fusing styles influenced by culture, nature, and travel with trend forward colors are her specialty. Mandalas, botanicals, ink spots, and intuitive, free-flowing lines are common elements in her paintings. The resulting combination is visually therapeutic and calming. Her work is created with the intent to give focus and a sense of positivity to all those who view it.
Yvette now resides in a small quaint farm town Northwest of Fort Worth, Texas, and still frequently visits her parents in Thunder Bay. She is a full-time professional artist, passionately inspiring others and has spent the last several years connecting and collaborating with artists around the globe as an effort to bring unity, positivity, creativity and support to the artisan community. Her art is stocked by retailers including JC Penny Home, Sears, Urban Art Loft, Art de Coeur, Wayfair, Art.com, Houzz, Overstock.com and Allposters.com
