About Yvonne Mendez

About the artist

Yvonne MendezMendez graduated with a Fine Arts degree from St. Mary’s Dominican College. Living in Atlanta, Georgia she pursued studies with Russian master Marc Chatov. Marc has been a great influence in her development. Under his nurturing tutelage she developed a strong style that shows a feeling for color and bold brushwork. Always appreciating works by Sorolla and Sargent, she strives for continuous growth.

Mainly a studio painter, Mendez is greatly influenced by the unique spirit of Santa Fe and it continues to influence her works, consisting mostly of animals, modern still life compositions, and figures.

Yvonne Mendez was born in Tampa Florida, currently lives in Santa Fa. We are happy to exclusively represent her work in New Mexico
