I was born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia and began painting at the age of four. My favorite color is yellow and I am an avid knitter.

I graduated with a degree in philosophy from Yale University, where their art department transformed my painting practice and motivated me to continue painting post-grad. The guidance and instruction of professors like Robert Reed and Anna Betbeze still influences my passion for painting.

Currently I'm a member of the Studio Artist program at Glass Wheel Studio in the NEON District of Norfolk, VA.

I also work regularly as a graphic designer and web developer. If you are looking for Evelyn wearing her graphic designer's hat, please visit
