Yanny Petters


Born 1961

Yanny Petters is a botanical portraitist from County Wicklow in Ireland. She works exclusively from life, either in her studio or out in the midst of her subject's habitats. Yanny paints in a variety of media, including oils and water colours, and produces exquisite drawings and fine art nature prints. She also specialises in Verre Églomisé (reverse-painting on glass), an old and rare technique she has been developing to suit her plant portraits since her years working as a sign writer in the 1980s. Her paintings are in a number of important collections including the Shirley Sherwood Collection at Kew Gardens and the Office of Public Works in Dublin. She is a member of Visual Artists Ireland, the Irish Society of Botanical Artists (ISBA), the Water Colour Society of Ireland and the Dublin Painting & Sketching Club.
