Welcome to my Artist's Web Page. My name is Kathleen Evans and I live and enjoy my art near Redding, California (Shasta County). The purpose of this web page is to share my artwork with friends and family, who are scattered around the country and beyond. If a passing stranger should find my work attractive, much of it is for sale and I can be contacted by email.
Art has been an abiding love most of my life. From the fifth grade on, I took art classes every school year, including college but it was always a sideline. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a major in Spanish and a minor in Psychology. After that, a busy 40-year career kept art in the background, an occasional hobby.
Now retired, painting has become a principal focus (along with home, family, and building my airplane) since 2006.
I have been studying under the acclaimed Redding artist, Deannie Meyer and have been an active member of the North Valley Art League (NVAL) and a member of the Shasta County Arts Council. For the past two years, I have enjoyed the honor of Chairperson of the NVAL annual juried Small Painting Show. I have displayed work at several regional fairs and many of my paintings have won awards. I have also exhibited my work at several venues of Redding's second Saturday Art Hop.
