Leya Evelyn

Leya Evelyn

An abstract painter born in Washington, D.C., Leya Evelyn was educated at Brown and Yale Universities, where she studied under Josef Albers. After working in New York City for twenty-four years, Leya moved to Nova Scotia, near Halifax, where she currently resides. Evelyn prides herself in her intention to make statements with her work. She opposes categories and exploits them with her techniques in art. Her mixed media works combine color, texture, and form to create collages not only greater than the sum of their parts, but also allowing for a complex combination of emotion and inspiration to be felt.

Evelyn exhibits extensively locally in Halifax, as well as galleries across Canada, the U.S., and Europe. She teaches part-time at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, instructing undergraduates in painting and drawing, and continues to conduct workshops for local artists.
