The Shores We Call Home: The Art of Carol Evans


The Shores We Call Home: The Art of Carol Evans Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The mystical shores of coastal British Columbia hold boundless inspiration and an enigmatic spiritual presence for many who live along its various coves and inlets. For almost three decades, Carol Evans has been practicing and refining her art,creating stunning portrayals of the beautiful and rugged shores of Vancouver Island and the coastal mainland. Her intensity of colour and attention to the subtleties of light are trademarks of her increasingly popular watercolour paintings.

The Shores We Call Home contains over eighty of Evans' works, collected here in gorgeous full-colour reproductions that faithfully represent the startlingly vivid visions of the original watercolours, capturing the unique character of BC's exquisite shoreline landscape--a place like nowhere else on earth.

Book News Annotation:

80 plus watercolors by native British Columbian artist Carol Evans are introduced by a short essay that focuses on her love of water and its special lights: the flash of brilliance, the reflected glow, the soft haze, the piercing pure sun that lights pebbles at the water's edge. Her paintings lovingly portray the beauty and mystery of coastal British Columbia. Her inspiring talent has made her work the subject of two previous books and places her paintings in many group and private collections worldwide. This is exceptional work, beautifully reproduced. Distributed in the US by Partners West. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (


Startlingly vivid watercolours capturing the unique character of BC's shorelines and coastal communties.
