Evan was raised in Dayton, Ohio where he began studying art at an early age. At the age of 5 he was accepted to the school of the Dayton Art Institute, three years ahead of the minimum age of 8. Focusing on the clear water and natural landscape of the Caribbean islands and the US coast, Evan is now almost exclusively painting in oils. The quality of Evan’s work is evident in the strength of composition, his sensitivity to light and color, and his ability to capture the beauty of his subject. He transforms his landscapes into works of art that capture the natural beauty and feel of the area, and brings us closer to some of the places we call paradise.
