"Honestly…it all started because of a bad break-up, and dealing with dating in Los Angeles for the first time."
Jillian Evelyn's paintings investigate the depths of awkwardness, discomfort, and contortion both from external expectations and within ones' own thoughts. Evelyn paints her figures and abstractions bathed in vibrant color. Evelyn is able to reflect her personal conflicts while allowing for the viewer's personal interpretations.
She primarily works with latex and acrylic based paint on wood, but has began expanding into making murals and painting large scale pieces.
