Evan Elizabeth Hilsenberg-Riley

Evan is a Pacific Northwest native. She grew up in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Washington.

She studied advertising and fine art at Washington State University in (glorious) Pullman, Washington prior to returning to Seattle.

The current focus of Evan’s work is exploring methods of translating the rejuvenating impact of nature onto canvas. The rich and varied environment of the Pacific Northwest plays a great influence. Studying natural forms, and the manner in which color and shadows shift throughout the day, inform her technique and palette selection.

She works primarily in acrylic and mixed media - finding undulating storm clouds moving in over the Sound, as well as sun-dappled trails to boast a serene sense of calm- and infinite inspiration.
