Yvonne Robert grew up in Germany and has since moved and spent many years living and working in Zurich, Switzerland, where she currently resides. Raised by a family of artists, Robert found home-life aesthetically stimulating and informative. She remembers her parents often discussing the notions of colour and form, and she was fascinated by the patterns and motifs of the 1960s that filled her home. These early influences perhaps motivated Robert to initially pursue a career in graphic design and subsequently in fine art, the origins of which certain motifs in her current work can be traced.
Robert has exhibited internationally in New York, Valencia, Madrid, Barcelona, London, Paris, Berlin and Zurich. Her work is held in private collections in the US, Spain, UK, France, Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
