Fine Art inspired by my travels
“Most days, the beauty in this world is overwhelming. I can’t help but respond with gratitude to the Lord through recording all things that take my breath away. It’s a wonderful adventure, which I'd love to share with you."
“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 the best, most iconic and visually stimulating and arrange them into a collage.”
Evelyn makes digital collages/montages. She uses her many travel photographs using Photoshop. 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, illusionary. 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 on canvas and watercolor on paper. 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.
