I am Evelyn Morgan, an artist based in Bedfordshire in the UK. Recently I have shown at The Other Art Fair in London.
My experience with the arts was at university and I was educated in Graphic Design. However, for the past three years, I have been developing myself as an artist and painter always looking to challenge myself, using my graphic skills to influence my process.
My work is a mixture between abstract lines and shapes and portraiture. I’ve developed my style by experimentation with using digital means to play and manipulate images to then be painted on the canvas or create digital works. I cannot help but see all my works as designs but, while everything I put on the canvas is thought out and planned, the design and creation of ideas is intuitive. Ultimately my work is a reflection of myself. It reflects my thoughts, feelings, mood or even a phrase.
A big inspiration in my work is fashion photography. This comes from growing up surrounded by magazines. I fondly remember buying fashion magazines because I wanted to see more than anything else the latest advert images and special photographed collections. In my work I take these images and put these in my IPAD to create something new, working as a collage artist.
Finally, my work reflects my joy of colour. Looking at new colour combinations and mixing colours I have not used before gives me great pleasure in the creations of my works which, I believe makes the anticipation of what I am going to create next more exciting.
