Welcome to the Pleasanton Art League

PAL, LAA, DAC General Meeting 

Monday October 10, 2022 at 7:30pm

In-Person at the Cultural Arts Building, 4477 Back Ave., Pleasanton 

Guest Artist: Yvette Head

Hosted by the Pleasanton Art League

 
 
Yvette Head has a degree in Interior Architecture and has always pursued her creative side. She fell in love with the art of hand-drafting, and produced all her building plans that way. Creating and problem-solving her conceptual designs on paper is what drew her to this field. 
Over the years, she completed several artist workshops and retreats, and experimented mostly with acrylic mediums, eventually developing her own style.
 
Autumn Lane Studios was born to represent her future as an artist and creative entrepreneur. Yvette’s work reflects the organic lines and textural elements she discovers in nature. She is drawn to create semi-abstract designs where real objects become slightly distorted or re-imagined in new ways. Her paintings have a structural style and strong line work, reflecting her background in design. Her current series of work consists mostly of botanical imagery. She is inspired by the little details found in her garden: the unique structure of a stem or branch bending with tiny blooms, or the shapes of flower petals as they unfold and fade. Sometimes it’s the little volunteer sprouting up through the rocks and dirt that catches her eye. She enjoys building upon different organic textures with layers of transparent glazes, watching how the fluid nestles into the cracks and crevices. Her line work is added strictly by freehand, sometimes referring to her sketchbook, but letting the texture inspire her flow.
 
Yvette is always experimenting with new ideas and techniques trying to push her creative energy. Her goal is to bring out more open and expressive styles while keeping true to what inspires her. While it was hard to let go from the career she originally pursued, she has completely encompassed herself into this new chapter as a thriving artist!
 
Born in Northern California then growing up as an expat, the Bay Area has been her home since graduating from SJSU. She’s in the process of expanding her artwork into textile design, which she’s very excited about. 
 
Yvette will be demonstrating her personal acrylic painting techniques that she’s developed over the years, and sharing her abstract botanical style used in her work. Most importantly, she’ll explain the various mediums she experiments with. Creating organic textures, transparent glazes and intuitive line work will be her focus. You don’t want to miss this!
