"From head to eyes, heart to hand, paint to paper." As an ‘en plein air’ artist, painting with loose flowing large brush strokes is intrinsic to expressing the West Coast landscape. Intrigued by changing winds blowing across sea grass, textures in wetlands, elements of the ocean, or, old growth forest activity, environmental elements of nature are metaphors for how we live and experience our human life.
I paint an abstract “feeling” of remembrance. Biography: Janice Evans is a full-time professional painter, working mainly 'en plein air' in water-based media exploring landscape. Her loose technique aims to deeply connect on an emotional level, the West Coast imagery and ethos. The work is sometimes delicate with a Zen vibe, sometimes bold in statement, or humorous.
Evans began formal studies at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, School of Art & Design 1970, and continued fine arts studies during her many travels as a military spouse, while also completing a BSc. She sells her work locally and internationally to new clients and collectors of her soul touching work.
