I strive to create bodies of work that are original, narrative and imaginative in nature. Creating fantasy worlds allows my mind to wander free of every day life, exploring new ideas and processes. My current series of poured paintings are an extension of my previous Urban Series of work, sharing characteristics such as vividly coloured fantasy settings and undulating buildings, but on a much smaller scale.
Pours on canvas and wood panel are created using high quality acrylic paints mixed with paint additives, alcohol, water, and a variety of other mediums required to create the desired effects. Colour combinations are selected to form different moods. When fully dry, each pour develops a unique pattern, intuitively guiding me in the placement of buildings, spaceships and other fantasy elements.
Creating this body of work is liberating, in that there are no confines or structures. These landscapes are where the imagination dwells, feeding the artistic mind and allowing the viewer to open up to alternate thinking. Do other dimensions exist? I believe they do and art is the gateway to these other realities.
Eva was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She has always had an affinity for art, learning her skills through experimentation and a great deal of practice. Having spent many years working as a CNC Programmer and CAD Operator, she realized the need for creativity in her life and returned to art part-time, painting faux finishes and murals.
In 2011, Eva turned her full attention to her art. Since then, she has won awards for her work, participated in numerous juried shows and exhibitions, volunteered on art show and tour committees as well as jurying shows for various art groups in the Greater Toronto Area and York Region. She has clients in Canada, the United States, South America, Great Britain, Australia, and Hungary.
Eva currently works from her home studio in Aurora, Ontario, where she continues to create art and learn by exploring different mediums and techniques.
