Here’s a short statement in case you have room:
Yvonne Yaar has always loved art since she was a young girl, and is especially interested in the medium of glass- intrigued by its transparency, color and light-reflecting qualities. She creates both glass jewelry and wall art/ sculpture. Each work is made in front of a torch, with a kiln, or with various tools used to manipulate molten glass. Yvonne feels her art reflects life and incorporates themes of motherhood, love of nature, humor, politics and addiction.

Yvonne exhibits and sells her art in multiple locations in the Tri State area [NJ, NY & PA] and frequently teaches at the LBI Foundation of the Arts & Sciences. Her work has recently been commissioned by a NJ hospital. She is the President and Founder of a local art co-operative, TRACx81. ###
