Marilynn Evans (360-461-5822) welcomes your contact, including interviews.
Marilynn Evans is an accomplished digital artist honing her skills in Sequim for the past 17 years. How do you do “digital artistry?” For Marilynn it is uploading her photographs onto her computer and using specific software to manipulate and add interest to create works of art. The image she finishes with is the expression of what the original could be with a little imaginative help. One of these is “Lavender Sunset,” which is an original photo taken a few years ago at Jardin du Soleil Lavender Farm in Sequim, resulting in a 24” x 16” print on aluminum. Another delve into fantasy, because you can use your imagination and it’s fun, resulted in “The Unicorn.” The original image taken in the Olympic National Forest, seemed mystical and made for a unicorn and a fairy. The peacock in the background is another of her photos. An exciting opportunity came last year when she was asked to illustrate a children’s book, “Sugar Plum Fairy Tales” by author Connie Miller. Marilynn will have books and prints available at the gallery during the month of July. firstname.lastname@example.org

I started carving 13 years ago. My favorite carving wood is basswood. When I first started carving, my intention was to carve the saints, Saint Anthony, St. Francis but I was quickly pointed toward the direction of the animals and birds, the expression in their faces, their posture, just trying to capture them in a moment in time. They are truly the heavenly creatures with whom we share our lives. email@example.com
