The artist, Yvonne Scarleth Recinos, was born in Guatemala and comes from a family of outstanding painters and sculptors, the foremost being her uncle Efraín Recinos, an acclaimed architect, painter and modernist sculptor.
Yvonne came to the United States on a Fulbright scholarship and graduate summa cum laude with a double degree in marketing and international business. In addition to her business accomplishments, she has developed an artistic repertoire that is as dynamic as her life.
While living in Puerto Rico, Yvonne devoted her time solely to honing her artistic style. Before rejoining the corporate world, she had the opportunity to obtain a master’s degree in Art History from California State University. Her passion is the pastel, oil painting, sculpture and watercolor and her specialties are the human figure and capturing the essence of Latin American culture, particularly her Guatemalan heritage. The 2013 exhibit in Miami, Florida, “Las Calacas” is Yvonne’s tribute to the history of Latin American women.
