Agnes Yackshaw

Agnes Yackshaw is an Arlington resident who has been painting for over ten years.  I enjoy painting portraits, people as well as pets, and nature, especially flowers.   I paint primarily in oils but also work in watercolors.  My major influences are the impressionists and I especially admire the use of light and the layers of color in their artwork and have adapted these qualities to my own paintings.  I enjoy painting bright colors to evoke happy moods and the pleasures of life.   My work may be seen in  various venues under the curatorship of Arlington Artists Alliance.  I also paint by commission.  Thank you for your consideration and for supporting the artists in Arlington, Virginia.
