Yvonne Rosser was born and educated primarily in Wales, United Kingdom. She studied further at the Kansas City Art Institute, earning a BFA degree. She taught at the Barstow School in Kansas City, Missouri for many years and chaired the Fine Arts Department there. Rosser is an artist in communion with the sanctity of the real, presenting a spirituality of art in devoted, actioned response to the natual environment. Her tree representations, whether blackened by oncoming dusk or ashen by fire and bearing reborn fruit, speak to the cycle of spirit guiding all universal life.
