Eva-Lynn Loy

Artist Statement

For as long as I can remember, the arts have been a great source of pleasure, passion and healing. Since moving to the beautiful Monadnock region in 2004, my passion for creating art has been reignited. There seems to be, just before the muse appears and before taking paint to paper, a moment of anticipation, a pregnant pause. Then, there "it" is, offering an opportunity to take a leap of faith into creating some kind of visual representation of my outer and/or inner world. Often the results reflect more what I feel or the way I'd like to see things than the way they actually appear.

Biography

Eva-Lynn is an artist, expressive art therapist and teacher. After teaching Elementary School, Eva-Lynn returned to school to become an expressive art therapist. In 1997, Eva-Lynn created and implemented a full-time expressive art therapy program at an alternative elementary school in Lynn, Massachusetts. Since moving to the Monadnock area in 2004, Eva-Lynn resumed her own art making. She has been in juried shows, both regional and national, group and private shows. Her paintings are part of private collections from the east to west coasts.
