Ynes Guevara

I am a self-taught artist. Born and raised in Mexico. Married in Timaru, NZ, and relocated to Richmond, Tasman NZ in Nov 2018. I am passionate about painting, about colours, about life and happiness. I enjoy the brush movements and the way the colour flows, the high contrasts throughout the white canvas material. I am a free spirit but focused on symmetry and achievement in high contrasts.  


I love to represent my life, which is my present and my past, my roots and my culture. I work on portraits, and on tributes to famous artists, such as Gordon Walters, Frida Kahlo, Rita Angus, Edward Weston and the list goes on.
