About Evelyn

Hello,

My name is Evelyn and I graduated from Eastern Illinois University where I received a Bachelor's of Fine Art and a Master's of Art. My focus during undergrad was 2Dimensional art; I have experience with painting, drawing, printmaking, and life drawing. During my graduate program my emphasis was portraits which I painted in oil on canvas or drew from life on paper. In my Master's program I was able apply my skills of teaching as I assisted my professor by lecturing/demonstrating for an introductory printmaking class. I gave instruction for the following methods: intaglio etching, soft ground etching, and linoleum printing. Since graduation I have been focusing my time on commissioned paintings and tutoring drawing/painting. I have extensive experience with oil paint, but have also worked with watercolor and acrylic paint.

My teaching method includes oral lecture, visual demonstration, followed by the student applying the technique with my guidance, along with homework so that the technique can be practiced and perfected. I like to know from the beginning what the students goals are so that we can work to achieve them. I like to start with a technical assessment to know what level the student is working at, and help give a a better understanding of what skills I can help develop. I prefer that my students keep a sketchbook to practice whatever technique is being taught, along with having a consistent place to analog new ideas and concepts.

I currently work out of Palatine, but would be willing to meet the student at a requested location for lessons. Materials list will be provided once the technical assessment is given and student decides what techniques and skills he/she would like to develop.
