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." 

Photo Montage

“I was taking a lot of photos everywhere I went. But what to do with them all? I couldn’t let them just fill up space on my hard drive! I love looking at my photos and remembering how it felt to be in that moment, but who has time to scroll through hundreds of images? I choose my best, most visually stimulating and I arrange them into a collage.”

Evelyn makes digital collages/montages using Photoshop. She only uses her travel photographs to work with. She shares her memories and thoughts of that place: how it felt to be in that moment. Often memories are embellished and exaggerated in some way. The finished images are dreamlike, illusions. Cut, layered, erased, re-arranged photographic pieces; altogether forming a new photograph, a culmination of the memory.

​Evelyn grew up reading National Geographic magazines 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

Evelyn was born into a military moving family, spending her childhood in the USA, Italy, Germany and England. 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 and Protestant Women of the Chapel. Her other interests include reading while enjoying a hot cup of English tea, the beach, and hiking. 

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 business courses.

Evelyn is represented by Quayside Art Gallery in Pensacola, Florida. She has exhibited in galleries and shows throughout the USA, England, and South Korea; as well as Tokyo and Lisbon. Evelyn has received national and international awards for her Photo Montage work, her paintings, and her photography work from competitions such as the London International Creative Competition to Light Space & Time Online Gallery. Her travel photography has been featured with Lonely Planet and JUMP.
