In 2004, after completing her City and Guilds (Parts 1 and 2) in Embroidery at Telford College, Yvonne became a member of 'Edge Textile Artists Scotland'. Since that time she has been an active member of the group and exhibited with them on a number of occasions. She is also a member of the Embroiderer's Guild and exhibits with them when the opportunity arises.

An enduring source of inspiration is the plethora of notes, photos and mementoes gathered from her travels over the years, both at home and abroad. Although hand stitch is a constant element of her work she likes to use a variety of techniques and media not confined to the use of fabric and stitch alone. Where appropriate the incorporation of paint, print, transfer image and paper are often used to add further texture and interest to her pieces
