Yvette Creel is a watercolor artist and a graphic designer. She was born in Louisiana sometime in the early 70s and is actually still alive. It was in Baton Rouge that she first began to study art at the age of 11 with Larry Casso. Through several classes, teachers, and competitions, she came to graduate from Loyola University in New Orleans with a degree in Advertising, a minor in Graphic Art, and a focus on print design. Graduate studies in Houston later included classes in figure drawing and creative digital media. She is currently studying for her Masters in Graphic Design at Louisiana State University.
Yvette is currently a freelance graphic designer. She began illustration and unique corporate identity after working for nearly ten years with The Shaw Group, Fortune 500 Company in Baton Rouge. Yvette worked there after fleeing the dot-bomb of San Francisco in 2000 where she designed web sites for the Walt Disney Internet Group. While in California, Yvette began traveling to deserts, national parks, and coastlines to photograph possible locations for future works. The photo database has now been manipulated and expanded to create a wonderful series of unusual subjects in whimsical locations.
Yvette is a member of the New Orleans Art Association, Louisiana Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society and Baton Rouge Art League. The artist is best known for her fine detail, fantasy color, and clever wit.
