Vern Yadon

A native Californian, Vern Yadon is a biologist by profession and has had a distinguished career as Director, and is now Director and Curator Emeritus of the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History. His love and intimate knowledge of natural history predominates in his work, giving rise to paintings of birds and animals that are a sensitive blend of reality and poetics.

Essentially self-taught, Yadon chooses watercolor as his means of aesthetic expression because he feels that the fluid qualities of the medium best express the subtle color and textural variations of his chosen subjects.
