Yvette Lantz grew up in a rural area of British Columbia on Vancouver Island. Observing and depicting nature in her art became part of her life from early childhood and continues to this day.Although Yvette has experimented with many different mediums she prefers to paint with oils on canvas. She applies many thin layers of paint and glazes which give her paintings depth and a rich glow.
Over the years the subjects of Yvette's paintings have varied from landscapes to animals, birds and flowers. Although she still paints many different subjects, her preference is birds, especially birds of prey.
Research plays a very large part in the creation of a painting. She spends a considerable amount of time out in the field gathering her own reference material. Quick gesture sketches and her own photos and notes complete the process.
Yvette's paintings have been exhibited in numerous exhibitions across Canada and the United States including the Wildlife Habitat Canada "Wetlands and Waterfowl" traveling exhibition, the Pacific Rim Wildlife Exhibition in Seattle, Washington, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, Charleston, South Carolina, Florida Wildlife Art Exposition, Art Essential and the Western Showcase at the Calgary Stampede, in Calgary , Alberta.
Yvette participated in the mural projects of Mural Mosaic (http://www.muralmosaic.com) including Earth's Treasure Chest and Kunamost, Coastal Inspirations which was unveiled at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, BC. She also exhibited her work in the Cedar,Yellowpoint Artisan's Christmas Tour on Vancouver Island every year from 2000 through 2010. Her work was featured at the Calgary Stampede Art Auction in 2011.
Her work has won numerous art awards including the 1990, 1992,and the 1996 British Columbia Ducks Unlimited Artist of the Year, 1996 Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation conservation stamp, first day cover and print and the 1997 Manitoba and Nova Scotia, Wildlife Federation Conservation stamp, first day cover and print, the 1999 British Columbia Ducks Unlimited Artist of the Year and the 2001 D.
