Yvette Hugill   VISUAL ARTIST

Yvette Hugill studied Graphic Design at the National Art School in Sydney,

Australia and ​later worked as a book designer for a leading publishing house.

Relocating to Gunnedah, northwest NSW, she studied painting and drawing through the Tamworth campus of TAFE, attaining distinctions in each course.

Her work is strongly influenced by the local environment, a continuing inspiration. She uses a variety of media, including pastels, oils, acrylics, coloured pencils and inks. Whilst the majority of her work is the landscape, she also enjoys still life and figurative work.

She has won numerous awards and her work is represented in private, corporate and civic collections in Australia, Japan, China, Ireland, U.S.A., Finland and the United Kingdom.

Yvette now resides in Wingham, on the NSW, Mid-North Coast. She has achieved Master Pastellist status with the Pastel Society of Australia. She has had an article published in the Australian Artist magazine, issue 238  'The Delicate Beauty of The Linear Stroke' and her works are represented in 'Luminous Colour' : A 220 page book, Showcasing 50 Australian Pastel Artists.
