For the last two years, Yvonne Hosey has experimented with adapting traditional marbling techniques with glass paint on board. Like most artists, her journey has been a winding one. Discouraged as a young woman from pursuing a career in art, Hosey opted instead for a career in nursing. Marriage and family followed. The creativity refused to stay buried as she became an avid cook, decorator, and collector. Her travels always included trips to art museums and exhibitions. When her son started high school, they moved to a house with a sunny back porch. “One day I discovered a pack of old oil pastels, bought a few sheets of paper, and commandeered the porch,” says Yvonne Hosey. “I haven’t looked back since.”
