Margaret Evans

Through teaching & travelling worldwide, I have learnt to use bolder tone & colour in my work, inspired by great artists I have met along the way. My influences have widened, my style has loosened and my mind is open to new ways to express myself as a painter, whether through love of pastel, watercolour sketches , or oil painting I promote and endorse pastels as a serious & worthy medium, as they can be used in dry or wet techniques, developed like oils or acrylics. I now paint fulltime at home and enjoy seeing pastels finally being accepted as a serious painting medium in top galleries in Scotland
