The ART STUDIO
My current work is an exploration of the global changes with our oceans, atmosphere, and lands that directly affects places, people, and our non-human neighbors.
Topics regarding resilience, a conscious acceptance of historical connection with environmental systems, and a celebration of the awesome, natural processes required to keep our world functioning, are areas I look to amplify.
Recurrent themes involve working with nature and human relationships, and the integrated alchemical stories between them.
These are typically in the form of natural and elemental “entities”.

At YCE Studios LAB, we are still observing nature.
We are learning from our diverse experiences, aligning with healthy environmental and human systems, and building with the understanding that we integrate these systems into our design.
Collaborative work is what the LAB (Learning, Aligning, Building) is and does.
The LAB is a regenerative product design and development space.
We are making furniture, lighting, wall coverings and panels, passive energy harvesters as part of the living space, and home decor. We are exploring material technologies and ways to power items.
We are designing for the future. With this in mind, we begin designing with certain parameters in place. Our end product works within a circular economy, considers permaculture perspectives, honors indigenous technology, aligns with natural home construction, considers bio-inspired design, acknowledges modern scientific knowledge, and is non-toxic. And, of course, everything we make designed for human use and appreciation.
More to come soon.
Yvonne is also inspired by working on branding design projects, which include organizational, marketing, and website design for businesses looking for agile, current, and long-lasting work that will stand the test of time.
