Yerman works in the tradition of Frida Kahlo and Max Beckmann. Her art
chronicles and interprets her emotional universe through drawing, gouache, collage, mixed-media, and oil
paintings. Recurrent themes include family, relationships, cultural values, and feminist issues. Her pieces are filled with personal iconography, which is both narrative and symbolic in nature. In addition to the use of allegory and figuration, an intrinsic part of her style is the bold and expressive use of color.
Yerman lives and works in New York City. She is a graduate of Tufts University and the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
