Robert Yonke works out of his two home studios, one in Pittsburgh, PA and the other in Garrett County, Maryland. His artwork reflect his love of music, the mountains and the outdoors. Bob’s award winning paintings have been shown in galleries throughout the Allegheny Highlands. He is a member of the Garrett County Arts Council and Participating Artists of the Turkeyfoot Highlands, and the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society.
As the artist puts it, “My work reflects personal interests. For example, I find that working on a painting of a bluegrass artist allows me to relive the pleasure I’ve had picking with my friends.” One of his favorite projects was providing original artwork for the International Bluegrass Music Association’s 2008 World of Bluegrass promotional materials. In addition to working at his art, Bob enjoys teaching watercolor seminars around the region.
Bob’s original paintings, prints and cards can be found in shops and galleries nationwide and online at www.appalachianstudio.com. Original artwork can be commissioned by contacting the artist directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
