Evelyn gained a Graphic Design degree at Kingston University and after some years as a designer and illustrator, now paints full-time.
Turning away from a background of 'conventional' illustration in pen, colour pencil and water-colour, she has developed a strong, distinctive style using gouache.
'This method of working comes very naturally to me - I relish the challenge of simplifying a scene, but keeping strong contrasts. Each original painting involves a lot of decision-making, around what to leave out and what depth of tone to use. In effect, simplification is actually quite complex! The whole process continues to fascinate me and there are still many variations I would like to develop.'
