About Yvette

Yvette Molina approaches her paintings with the precision and curiosity of an 18th century botanist, training her eye on both the cultivated and the spontaneous, improbable eruptions of plant life she encounters in her surrounding urban environment. Her ‘portraits” of various plants and flowers come primarily from her own garden and immediate neighborhood in Oakland, California, where she lives and works.

Yvette’s painting has been garnering steady praise since she began exhibiting in 1997. She has been recognized with an Artist-in-Residence Fellowship at the Legion of Honor and de Young Art Center, and, in the spring of 2005, she was chosen by Rene de Guzman and Meredith Tromble for inclusion in ArtSpan’s biennial Selections exhibition. She will have work at the 2005 AAF Contemporary Art Fair in New York City and she has a solo show scheduled for September, 2006 at Ruth Bachofner Gallery in Bergamot Station, Santa Monica, California.

Born in 1972 in Kansas City, Kansas, Yvette Molina studied painting at the University of Dayton, Dayton,Ohio, the Norfolk Institute of Art and Design, Norfolk, England, and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Angers, France. She is a full-time artist. Her work is held in many private collections throughout the United States and Europe.

"Beautiful work. Well observed. With reference to an above comment; truth is beautiful if you experience its wholeness and not sliced up by science (partiality). It is simply current vogue in Art to reflect current human consciousness which is painfully aware of its own ego (sence of separation) and so perceives the world in that way.This kind of work is needed and is not just beautiful; like Zen and japanese traditions there is DEEP inner truth in beauty which is written in nature. Yvette is carrying this tradition forwards; she is living it in the WAY her work has exacting precision... as does nature and direct experience of truth.PS Im amy smiths sister :)"
