His style of oil paintings are a mix of contemporary landscape painting fused with his own psychedelic perspective.

GHOST HOST

As well as being a crazily talented he is absolutely one of the nicest people we know. Always upbeat, positive and lots of fun. Oh and he plays guitar & sings too!

Rachel specialises in sketching and painting people. The Evans home is full of stunning portraits, where Rachel has captured fabulous images of her gorgeous girls Charlotte and Georgia.

Whenever we think of Rachel its mainly for her interest in the different political party candidates and the complexities of Canadian politics however I’m not sure the word ‘Douchebag’ is readily used on political campaigns but maybe it should be…

During school holidays Rachel likes travelling, enjoying spending time in Florida and has a fabulous knowlegde of weather! Rachel made us feel totally at home during our stay in Alliston and we loved spending time together. I’m also now a converted Tequila drinker as Rachel introduced me to a delicious 1930’s Tequila cocktail!

Charlotte and Georgia are stunningly beautiful, polite, super intellectual, they can play guitar and sing like angels.

With such creative parents it’s no wonder they have found their own artistic ways. Charlotte is a talented writer having tons of fan fiction hits online. Georgia has a natural talent for stage musicals, her star turn portrayal of Lord Farquaard in Shrek totally brought the house down.

So after a few weeks in Canada with our cousins, the British Evans are left feeling a bit intellectually inferior! But with art inspiration all around me I  had opportunity to try out oil painting with help from Gary, I guess all you need is a bit of creativity to rub off..
