Evelyn Beliveau

Teaching Artist

Evelyn Beliveau paints human faces and figures with gestural and meticulous brushwork. Raised in Vermont, she earned a B.A. in Visual Arts from Bowdoin College in 2019. She also studied at the Siena Art Institute in Siena, Italy in 2017.

A fascination for effects of light on human forms galvanizes Evelyn’s practice. She creates paintings on-site with live models, often finishing a painting during a single live session in order to respond to a moment in time. She aims to invoke awareness of tactile sensations in the viewer, portraying skin as both a sense organ and a sensory stimulant.

Her work has been featured in exhibitions in the northeastern United States, including a public art installation with fellow Art Yard Teaching Artists and several exhibitions at St.HROUDA gallery in Brooklyn, New York. Her work has also appeared on album covers and in publications based in New York and Maine. In 2021, she hosted art-making events in Brooklyn parks, inviting participants to paint together and draw inspiration from an atmosphere of communal creativity. Evelyn lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
