YVONNE PETERSEN BACK ON THE ART SCENE

Local artist Yvonne Petersen is revitalizing her place as a local artist with a display of her work at Chase Manhattan Bank’s Golden Rock branch on St. Croix.
A native-born Virgin Islander, Petersen’s work covers the spectrum of island scenes from days gone by to display the mixture of local people, including those of the Rastafarian culture.
Petersen’s natural art talent is evident and through grants from the V.I. Council on the Arts, she received professional art instruction from internationally known artist and watercolorist Jo Tarabula. Most of her original work is not for sale.
"Very few of my original works are privately owned, and I really don’t plan to sell those that I do still have," Petersen said.
However, she is currently seeking funding to reproduce her works on canvas in limited editions. The reproductions will come with certificates of authenticity.
"It would be just like having an original," said Petersen.
To contact Petersen, call 778-1269.
