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. Her MFA is in Graphic Arts and it’s from LSU.
The guardian of Chaz and Whitman is currently freelancing as a graphic designer. She has worked in design for over 20 years (gasp!) but she has always been an illustrator. There are rumors of a book in the works called Two Wild Hares, but we will have to wait and see if that is true.
Yvette is a member of the New Orleans Art Association, the Louisiana Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and the Baton Rouge Art League. The artist is best known for her fine detail, fantasy color, and clever wit.
