My name is Yvonne, and I used to sing onstage, but I’m now a “sing-at-home mom” to a beautiful and rambunctious toddler. She’s my biggest fan and harshest critic! I’m also wife to a loving husband and “mama” to an 11 year old Chihuahua-Maltese named Donut.
I am currently on a selective hiatus from performing, and have been for quite a few years now. I take whatever projects come my way if I can do it, but for now, I’m perfectly content raising my family. It’s given me time to explore other creative avenues, like my clip art shop! I am a proud art school dropout.
I do miss performing. I miss it a lot. It took a long time for me to come to peace with my “selective” hiatus. I will be documenting my slooow return to the spotlight. The first thing I’m going to tell you is that…I have no idea what I’m doing. Not anymore. The industry has changed a lot since I started years ago – diversity is up (yay!), electronic submissions have become the norm (though hardcopy submissions are still accepted and given the same consideration), and there are so many avenues in which to support yourself as a performer/personality these days. (YouTube star, anyone?) I hope you’ll join me as I embark on this new journey of mine. And maybe, you’ll find yours too!
Stick around! See what happens next!
