Christine Evans, painting and pastels


phone: 01792 865834

I have always painted, from my primary school, secondary school and to the present.

I was born and brought up near Ystradgynlais. In my late teens I moved to Australia where I was busy bringing up my son. My art lapsed for a few years but I took it up again and began with oil painting. From there I found pastels and fell in love with them.

The colours in Brisbane are very different to that of Wales but had a vibrancy of their own. My genre is landscape and scenes. I love bright hues but also enjoy moody atmospheric colours too. On returning to Wales after 20 years away my whole mindset had to revert back to the lush greenery. I have sold quite a few pieces over the years but the passion will always be painting.
