Why I Paint?
by Yvonne Pitts

Painting is my self-expression, giving me endless subject matter to work with. Painting, for me, is a form of therapy that takes me to a place all my own.  My abstract world provides a peaceful calmness in some of the most stressful times. I create whatever my emotion dictates, producing emotional abstract images. 

I am a Impressionistic Abstract Mixed Media artist who is fascinated with radiant colors, texture, pattern and shine.  Most of my subject matter makes me smile, makes me laugh or sometimes makes me cry...all feelings that are important components of life.

In the majority of my work, my heart and soul are on display for all to see.  In the beginning I thought that I painted secrets.  It was not until I began to display my pieces that I realized others could interpret them, sometimes exactly as they were meant to be.

                

Artist Yvonne Pitts is a very unique artist that has had the opportunity to share her work as a featured artist in various galleries and coffee shops in the Chicagoland area with aspirations to reach other venues and locations.

Yvonne is a native of North Chicago, IL. Growing up, Yvonne always had an interest in the arts.  Her mother was not a visual artist but was a true artist of communication. Her father  had a talent for sketching, but that talent was not known until after his passing.

Throughout her extensive body of work, Yvonne’s use of vibrant colors has been constant. Over the last few years she has incorporated collage utilizing many mediums in her pieces.

Faces are also a constant in many of Yvonne's pieces, sometimes abstract without features but always recognizable as a face.  

Her imagery has been described as whimsical, fun and entertaining. Yvonne’s color choices are vibrant with outlines of bold black. Even in primarily black and white pieces there are always touches of color on the canvas.

Yvonne Pitts began exhibiting in 2005 at Coffee Grounds Coffee House formerly of Waukegan, IL and now has been exhibiting her work in various coffee houses and galleries in the Chicagoland area. She has been in numerous group and solo exhibitions.

The creative urge has always been in me. Creating abstract imagery allows me to display my whimsical imagination, thoughts and feelings through bold and bright colors.  I would describe my work as a stylized, impressionistic abstract.
