About

 

Yvonne C. Lozano


BIOGRAPHY

I am originally from New Orleans, LA, but have been living most my life in Jacksonville, FL. As a child I was always interested in learning and exploring the world around me with an emphasis on tapping into the creative & expressive side of my brain. Art has been an ever evolving and never ending learning process in my life. I went to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts where I majored in drawing and painting, which is also where most of my serious art training began. I went on to study at Jacksonville University, graduating in 2001 with a Bachelors of Fine Arts and a concentration in printmaking.

As an artist, I purpose myself to create art that engages, empowers, and expresses love. After several years of doing traditional gallery shows and public art projects, I have switched gears and have started a new adventure in art licensing and children’s book publishing. I hope to reach and impact as many people as possible with my series called The Dingo Walks in Love.

In addition to art licensing, I will also continue to accept commissions for murals, pet portraits, and other fine art opportunities that time may allow.

  • OPERATION: Bring Art to the People is a project that I started here in Jacksonville to share the power of art with the masses through random art drops, murals, social media, blogging, & other public art efforts. The art drops/hunts were inspired by Chicago artist Patrick Skoff who was doing Art Hunts in his city and by doing the hunts, he was able to expose & connect new people to the art scene which is what I hope to accomplish here in Jacksonville.
