Yvonne Lashmett is an artist and photographer living in Durango, Colorado. Having worked for the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad since 1985, trains have become her passion and she has many years experience photographing trains. Yvonne loves to explore; getting ‘lost’ and finding the beauty in just about any back road where she meanders. Churches, abandoned buildings and ghost towns are also subjects for many of her works. Yvonne was a newspaper stringer photographer in New York State and helped cover the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid. Her photographs have received numerous awards and have appeared in national publications including Field & Stream, USA Today, Colorado Life & United Hemisphere as well as many local publications and several books.
