Born in Washington, D.C. and educated at both Brown and Yale Universities in the United States, Leya Evelyn moved to Nova Scotia in the early 1980’s after having lived and worked for some time in New York City. Evelyn’s paintings show her passionate concern with pure forms, abstract shapes, and intense colours. The powerfully rich and deep colours that dominate her paintings and the loving, painterly application of those colours demonstrate the artist’s abiding interest in the techniques and effects of abstract painting. Leya is internationally recognized for her work.
