About Me


Yvonne King’s paintings evoke a sense of her native Irish seaside and country landscape.

My Story

Usually I paint landscapes and seascapes, preferably en plein air.

I love spending time outdoors in the natural beauty of Connemara (Ireland) and was lucky to grow up in Roundstone village – an artists paradise.

These paintings are my interpretation of familiar sights in Connemara- seascapes, moonlit landscapes, cottages and water lilies dotting the small lakes on bog roads. I’ve also enjoyed painting in the United States, Australia, Greece, Spain and Netherlands.

It was a privilege to paint in the Studio of Scottish artist Douglas Anderson, Royal Painter, for 4 years – total immersion in the Old Master techniques in drawing and oil painting. I believe I could not have a better mentor!

I’ve had successful solo exhibitions and been in group exhibitions in Ireland, the UK and the US for over 20 years now.

I’m a member of Visual Artists Ireland, the South Boston Arts Association & the Crafts Council of Ireland.
