About The Artist

Artist Statement

I am proud to announce that Disappearing Woman II was chosen for the DeYoung Open 2023.

When working as an interior designer for 25 years, interiors became my canvases. So when I went back to painting with “real” canvases in my Montreal studio, not surprisingly, my first attempts were images of studio interiors and objects.

A Pillar series began with an industrial support post in my studio, evolved into classical Greek, totem, circus, & calligraphic columns ending with an ionic eyed ET painting.

Both in Montreal and Sausalito, I have painted from live models typically positioned mysteriously with backs in the forefront. My latest Disappearing Women series relates to the secondary “roles” women have played throughout history. A new Foodscape series has emerged as well from a Bird’s eye view Topography series.

My work is loose, free-flowing & non-conforming yet with recognizable imagery as well as abstracts. The mediums I use are acrylics, oil stick, collage on paper and canvas as well as monoprints with akua ink & “chine colle” on paper.


I have been a working studio artist for approximately 20 years both in Montreal and Sausalito at the ICB. Previous to that I had my own interior design business, Gretchen Evans Interiors, working both internationally and domestically.
