About the Artist
EVIE CONNELL
PAINTING AND ARTISTS
Evie was born in Saskatchewan, Canada but moved
to California when she was 8.  One of 7 children,
she grew up in the middle of a large family.   She
enjoyed being outside in the rose garden or under
the big walnut tree, and marveled at the way things
grew… how perfectly balanced the petals are formed
on a flower.   Throughout her life she has had an
awareness of color and a great love for all forms of
beauty. Evie is gifted with a sense of style, inner
strength and peace.

Having started painting with oils in the 70’s, Evie’s
busy life with husband and 3 children plus
community activities, forced several years of other
forms of art.  She did home decorating,
dressmaking, fashion shows and even modeling for a
short time.  When home life became quieter with
time again to pursue her deep love, she began
painting with watercolors.  She is self taught with a
few workshops and a sprinkling of lessons along the
Way.
