Born in Switzerland on 26 June 1968. Of Italian origin, Yolanda Di Fede lives and works in Zurich. Self-taught. She has an artistic sense since childhood, also participating in painting competitions as a child. She paints intuitively and above all Design and the world of fashion has always inspired her a little. As a child, she painted dresses in different color combinations and it can be seen that, in her painting style, she has an excellent color management, often using any decorative elements. However, she graduates in economics and commerce and decided to leave painting forever to devote herself to a more "reasonable" path, according to the world around her, working in the commercial field for 30 years. Ten years ago, however, everything changed in her life. She starts all over again and resumes the passions that gave her satisfaction as a child and that she neglected for her career. In addition to sewing, embroidery and dancing, she resumed painting during the Covid in 2021. And it is then that her participation in various artistic and collective events in Switzerland begins.
Diploma in Economy and Commerce.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
1. The sister with the healing hands: My brother's son had an accident and needed surgery on his nose. When he was healing in bed at home, his little sister stroked him lovingly. It seemed that it made him heal faster. I was touched by this gesture.
2. The City at the seaside: I need to move and am looking for a place that suits me. I have sent a wish to the universe that I be led to live in a beautiful place by the lake or at the seaside.
