Carol Evans was born in Vancouver and currently lives with her husband on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia. She is a self-taught artist, developing skills with watercolours over a period of thirty years.
Evans has had seventeen one-woman shows and participated in many group exhibitions. Her paintings reflect a reverent attitude towards the beauty of the British Columbia shoreline, as if to hold it up and say, “Look at this! Isn’t it magnificent, isn’t it exquisite, and aren’t we fortunate to have this ocean so full of life?” always in the hope that if we appreciate and love something, we’ll look after it. Her paintings have been published in the books West Coast: Homeland of Mist; Releasing the Light; and The Shores We Call Home. Evans’ work has achieved international acclaim and is represented in exhibitions and private collections worldwide.

For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.
Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains.
