Elan Evans Decorative Finishes | Elan Evans
I began this journey in the theatre. As an aspiring actress, I started painting scenery for extra cash, and soon found that I was making much more money working on the scenery than in front of it. While in New York, I found my way into interior decorative painting. It was a revelation to have people phoning me asking if I was available, instead of continually knocking on doors, hoping, and hoping again, for the opportunity to practice my craft. In the world of interior paint, as in the theatre, I found that I still had the ability to transform the space I’m working in, and use that space to tell a story. I’ve never looked back.
After several years of working for other talented and generous artists, I established my own studio in beautiful Sonoma County in 2000. I found my way to Cotati, to a converted barn that now houses my studio and my home.
