As a child prodigy growing up in Australia, Yvonne Maree was driven by a singular desire to paint on paper the images in her mind's eye. Unfortunately, the only art supplies available to her were crude wooden boards and tinted water.

When these rudimentary materials proved too perishable, she prevailed upon her family for a more permanent medium with which to demonstrate her talents. Her youthfull persistance came stunningly to fruition when her work was accepted by the Museum of Sydney at the tender age of ten.
In 1973 a calamitous automobile accident left her with amnesia, and she had to arduously relearn everything and trust her subconscious mind to respond to the familiar:a needed sound,fragrance, or image to evoke a memory.

Her artistic accomplishments have been well documented in a permanent file established in the Archives of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington.D.C. USA, National Library of Australia in Canberra, Who's Who in American Art, Who's Who in the World.
