Evelyn came to East Anglia about 1990 and her work is centred around the found object, which also overlaps with notions of excavation and the land. An artist in collage, collagraphs, etching, fine art painting, lino-prints, mixed media with printmaking a strong factor in her work pushing the boundaries of printmaking to a new refreshing approach which is often thought to be a very traditional medium. This discipline is often collaged and mixed with painting/drawing/sewing. Evelyn has had several years teaching experience in Art & Design, Photography at secondary school level and has Printmaking classes and courses from her studio at 33 Fornham Road, Bury St Edmund's, Suffolk and is a full member of the Suffolk Open Studios.
