About Bill

Elizabeth A. Evans is an award winning formally trained artist painter who has been providing her special brand of art to a growing number of collectors and fans for over 40 years. As an artist, she is continually growing and exploring the world around her. She has produced a substantial body of work dealing with a variety of subject matter. For the most part, her style can be classified as "representational", (as opposed to abstract). The subject matter is readily recognizable but the treatment is what makes her unique. TRAINING & BACKGROUND Elizabeth was Born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. . She enrolled at Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in 1962, and studied painting, drawing, sculpture, etching and design under the tutelage of Arthur Lismer (Founder of Canada's world famous Group of Seven). She also attended the Banff School of Fine Arts on a Scholarship during the summer of 1963 where she studied painting under Gordon Smith of Vancouver and portrait painting under William Townsend of London, England. In her second summer at Banff, again on scholarship, she studied Advanced Painting under Gordon Adaskin of Winnipeg. She has been awarded a Senior Certificate in Painting from the University of Alberta. So as you can see, she was a talented student and was mentored by some significant Canadian artists. In particular she befriended Arthur Lismer, a founding member of Canada's Group of Seven. He was her teacher and mentor at the Montreal Museum and had a significant impact on her ability to "see" the world through the eyes of an artist.
