Evelyn Bartlett gained a degree in graphic design at Kingston. She moved to Devon afterwards and soon turned freelance, producing illustrations and designs for
publishers, advertisers, hotels and holiday parks.
After raising a family and living in South Devon for over 30 years, she moved to Hampshire and has been painting full-time, reviving a style she only touched on as a
student, using gouache. This strong, distinctive application owes everything to her graphic ‘roots’ and has become her signature.
The past twelve months have seen her experiment with oils and acrylic, to try out larger works; watch this space!
Evelyn has had successful exhibitions at venues in Hampshire, Dorset and Devon. She still owns a house in Exeter and frequently returns to the West Country for business and pleasure.
