Yvonne is a joy to work with & incredibly talented at her craft. She is undoubtedly dedicated & passionate from conceptualization to final product. We’ve hired Yvonne for a variety of projects involving glazing, mural work, decorative finishes, stenciling, etc. Her custom paintings are in a league of their own and they transform their space into something entirely new & inviting.

“The large faux mosaic portraits you painted for our windows were beyond anything I imagined. They looked so real that the press referred to them as “mosaics”. And the mural you did for our first ever Chanukah window is a showstopper.
- Robin Lauritano, (former) VP Visual Presentation, Bloomingdale’s, NYC
“The gold leaf ceiling you did at our Fifth Avenue lobby looks terrific.”

Yvonne is a very skilled artist and decorative painter, who did a wonderful job for us in a large Tribeca space. Her work included decorative finishes, glazes and murals on walls as well as ceiling coffers throughout our home. Our favorite is a 360 degree beach scape she created in our daughter’s bedroom. She is also exceptionally meticulous and considerate of others living and/or working in the space. We highly recommend her.

We are very pleased with the decorative painting you did for our room.

I love the Lulu in Paris mural you did for us; it transforms the room.

I have hired Yvonne on several occasions to perform decorative painting, plastering and house-painting within my condominium apartment. Yvonne is a terrific artist and is wonderful to work with: she is an expert with colors and very knowledgeable about repairing wall cracks. Moreover, she is meticulous about her work and understands how to work within an occupied apartment. Yvonne is a lovely person to work with in that she is patient, reliable and completely trustworthy. I have been the President of a luxury condominium for many years and have heard horror stories from residents regarding their decorative painters. Yvonne is a true professional and provides an excellent service at a reasonable price.

Your trompe l’oeil murals in our store still look FABULOUS.

We had such a positive experience with YVStudio. We had two very creative but VERY SPECIFIC asks for two rooms in our apartment. Yvonne was able to replicate exactly the “inspiration” photos that I provided and was so focused on providing the exact customized painting style that we wanted. She did one room with a very unique plastering/texture layer underneath the paint, and she did another room with a very subtle distressed Anthropologie-catalogue-like background.
Prior to painting, we met 3 times, and she created multiple customized samples for us to review and select, and continued to refine them until they were exactly what we wanted. We gave her the keys to our apartment and went away for a week and we came back to a completely cleaned up apartment that was beautifully done.
She even went above and beyond and touched up areas of the baseboard and radiator that weren’t included in her original estimate. She sent us fun photo updates and checked in while we were away as well. She is truly an artist and I so appreciated her color and tone advice as we worked on the project. She is also an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly highly recommend her work and am happy to provide additional information.

We finished on time with thanks to you. Its always a pleasure to have you working with us. It’s always difficult as we work under extreme time frames, but with you on board I never have to worry, as you are so reliable and accommodating.

As an interior designer, I have hired Yvonne numerous times to create special murals for the rooms I am designing. She is very talented, an expert at many techniques, personable and highly reliable and responsible. You can actually see some of her work on my website (see beach scene, decoratively painted “houses’ bookshelves).
- Esther Sadowsky, Charm & Whimsy, NC
Our client from Italian Vogue called and said that they and the photographer loved the pieces you painted yesterday! Thanks again.
- John Powell, President, 4 x 8 Workshop, Brooklyn, NY.
From the moment of initial contact, Yvonne provided professional, first class service – down to the smallest detail. She took a dilapidated apartment in need of plaster and paint repair and turned it into a stunning place to live. I was blown away by the end result when I walked into the apartment – it was like an entirely new place. Everything was communicated in writing and her price was reasonable. I would highly recommend Yvonne Verwer to everyone – I’d scream it from my rooftop if my co-op wouldn’t cite me disorderly conduct! Thank you Yvonne – you are a class act!
- Jamie Cosnowsky, Chicago
Not only did you get the job done with your flawless nature, you have artistic sincerity in your work that really shines in the result of your work. The apartment sparkles.
