original artwork for vibrant living
Evan Neuhaus Mooney (b. 1983, Houston, TX) is an American artist living and working in Charlottesville, Virginia. Evan has her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Virginia (2006, Charlottesville, VA) and her Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Bank Street College (2010, New York, NY). Her studies at UVA gave her a strong background in the arts, specifically in Art History, Architectural History and Studio Art. Her graduate studies and work with children in the classroom allowed Evan to broaden her thinking and understanding on the importance of curiosity, connection, observation, and play.
Working primarily in painting, Evan uses a variety of mediums including but not limited to acrylic paint, watercolor, gouache, and epoxy resin. She favors working on archival paper or birch panels and has recently begun learning to use a jigsaw to cut out some of her panels. Her work focuses on relationships in color and curved shapes and lines. Evan’s use of limited palettes, hard edges and minimalist forms allow viewers to engage with her artwork on their own terms, bringing their unique experiences into the conversation between the artwork and themselves.
