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.
