Biography

Evelyn Konrad, one of Northwestern Ontario's prominent Watercolour Artists, has had her paintings exhibited internationally. She operates her own gallery known as MYSTIQUE OF THE NORTH. A portion of her work can be seen by visiting her web site: www.konradwatercolours.com.

Besides winning an award of excellence from the Manhatten Art Competition , Evelyn's work has been presented to Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario. Her art works have been presented as awards for several organizations such as Parks Canada, Northwestern Diabetes, and various other venues. She has been a two time recipient of Ontario Arts Council Grants.

Evelyn has made several journeys to France, Italy and Mexico to capture the spirit of culture, landscape and history. This has helped her become a prolific painter. Greater freedom emerged in her works after she studied with a number outstanding artists. Evelyn is also an instructor in watercolours.

Evelyn paints from the soul, believing art to be one of the most significant ways of expressing her feelings. In her words, "I have been released out of a cocoon". She believes art to be a gift from our Creator and, therefore, must be shared with others. Evelyn's expansive landscapes, her depiction of water scenes, with displays of vivid colour, convey a myriad of emotion for viewers to experience and appreciate.

During the past years Evelyn's art work has been exhibited at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Thunder Bay Art Gallery, the Sivertson Art Gallery in MN, as well as the Pictograph Gallery in Northwestern Ontario. A six week display of her work was held at the John Audubon Museum in Kentucky where Audubon has his original paintings and memorabilia displayed. Besides showing her work several times a year in various venues, she donates her work to several charity auctions.
