Yvonne Gillespie

Embodying a unique style with a message, creative and full of imaginings.  Gillespie makes a statement about women’s experiences.  Her achievement aim through her work she explains is to “… do this in a way that allows thought and not dismissal.  I wish to present colourful images, invoke the past and look at cultures...  my work references many sources, Western and the Far East as well as prehistory, mythology and mystery.”  Experience and education includes years of nursing, a law degree and graduating with a Diploma in Fine Arts from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design in Auckland.  The artist’s hope from the viewer is that they may reflect on what they see and read, that they experience pleasure, interest and sometimes humour.
