Born in New York City, Yvonne Twining Humber studied at the National Academy of Design and the Art Students League. A recipient of the Tiffany Foundation Scholarship, she worked in Boston as a WPA artist from 1935 to 1943. During this time, she refined her trademark style that combines Regionalist and Precisionist elements in her modern depictions of urban and rural landscapes. After moving to Seattle with her husband, Humber became an active member of the Women Painters of Washington and the NW Artists Gallery. Her work has been exhibited and collected by numerous institutions including the Seattle Art Museum; the Tacoma Art Museum; the Fleming Museum; the Oklahoma City Art Museum; and the Washington, D.C. Library of Congress, among others.
