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.
