About

 “Most days, the beauty in this world is breathtaking. I can’t help but respond in awe to the Lord through making art. It’s a wonderful adventure, which I'd love to share with you." 

Digital Montage Photography / Digital Photo Montage 

 “Everyone takes photos. We fill our phones with photos of family, friends, the food, the experiences we are having. And what are we doing? Recording our memories. Proof we were there. We share our photos. We scroll back through all those moments and smile as we relive that memory.

 

 Each new place I visit, I take photos of everything. Once the trip is finished, I upload and edit through my memory cards selecting the best elements. I focus on the moments that pertain to my recollections. And soon a new photograph is constructed. A single image I can enjoy in my home, hanging in a place of recognition for reflection. Those details, my feelings, my reactions to my surroundings digitally captured, the iconic monuments and landscapes, the people and the colors. A visual tapestry woven together for my eyes.   

 Evelyn makes digital collages/montages using Photoshop. She is very particular to only uses her travel photographs to create montages. Evelyn shares her memories and thoughts of that place: how it felt to be in that moment. Often memories are embellished and exaggerated, or fuzzy and missing some details. Memories are not an accurate portrayal of what was/is there. Her finished images are dreamlike, illusions: some elements grab the eye, while others recede in the background. Cut, layered, erased, re-arranged photographic pieces; altogether forming a new photograph, a culmination of the memory.

​Evelyn grew up reading National Geographic magazines, animal encyclopedias and watching David Attenborough’s wildlife documentaries, and the wanderlust and desire to travel developed.

Portrait Painting and Drawing

Evelyn paints oil and watercolor. She is inspired by what she sees around her, using her photographs as source material. Evelyn paints portraits; studied from photograph and from life. She draws portraits in pencil and charcoal on paper.

        

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biography

As an adult, she married a military member and has continued her travels, living in South Korea, The Azores, and Japan. It’s little wonder that the countries she has lived in and the cultures she’s witnessed lend so much to her artistic practice.

 

 Evelyn currently lives in Florida with her husband and their two sons. She saves all her spare pennies for future travel trips. Evelyn is a homeschooling mother. She is involved in her local church. Her other interests include reading while enjoying a hot cup of tea, the beach, and hiking with her camera. 

 Since graduating with a BA Fine Art from the University of Hertfordshire, UK, Evelyn has completed online classes and courses in traditional painting, figurative drawing, portraiture, photography, marketing, and art business courses.

 Evelyn is represented by Quayside Art Gallery in Pensacola, Florida. She is a member of Artel, also in Pensacola, Florida. Evelyn has exhibited in galleries and shows throughout the USA, England, and South Korea, as well as Tokyo and Lisbon.
