Yvonne Wayling was born in London in 1962. She went to Loughton College in the late 70’s to study art when it was still attached to The Acting School in Loughton Essex. She studied
there for two years and was tutored by Bill Woodrow. She then took a year out to travel and then went back to college in the early 1980’s and studied Graphic Design with the Society of Industrial
Artists and Designers in East London.
Since graduating Yvonne has worked in many fields of art and design. Meeting Ben Oakley at an art gallery they went on to work together with pop up art galleries around London and the South
East. Since the Ben Oakley Gallery opened in Greenwich London, Yvonne has always shown her work there and continues to do so. During this time she has met and worked with many creative and
Yvonne’s innovative art can be seen on many different mediums. Using spray paint and stencils she creates unique works, each piece individually painted on mediums as decadent as champagne
bottles, tables, skateboards and guitars as well as traditional canvas. Her larger canvas work images are layered to give further and unexpected depth to portraiture. Ultimately, the works that
Yvonne produces strive to be beautiful, unique and exquisite.
Yvonne’s work is regularly on show at the Ben Oakley Gallery and other 'in' locations such as the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, West Bank Gallery, The Circle London, and the hottest London
pop-ups. Her bottle display in the main window of Far Rockaway on Curtain Road in London’s Shoreditch is striking enough to stop traffic.
