Born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Evelyn decided to move west for two years to experience the west coast. Stepping off the train in downtown Vancouver, she knew she was home. The mountains, the sea, the people, all welcomed her, and she embraced the city happily. That was over 40 years ago. Evelyn now resides in the Comox Valley, beside the ocean in the shadow of Mount Washington in British Columbia.
Living on Vancouver Island and traveling abroad has given her inspiration for her paintings. The great thing about painting is that each painting has a story to tell and she is more than willing to give you the narrative. Being a member of Artsphere, an art group out of Royston, BC, Canada, has been a wonderful experience and an opportunity to have her work critiqued by fellow artists and to show her paintings at various art exhibitions.
