Instructor Bios

Evalynn J. Alu



Evalynn J. Alu was born and raised in Los Angeles. She received her degree in art at California State University, Fullerton in 1982. Having gone through a long representational period she gradually discovered a need and fascination with objective abstract form mostly derived from the universal forces that are forever present. Experimentation with her pallet as well as with her application soon became her focal point. Gradually layering paint using many techniques associated with watercolor and oil painting allowed Evalynn to create her feelings and moods present at the time. Experimentation and very seldom using a brush led her to achieve rewarding results. Her hope is that her work will allow viewers to discover for themselves what their own mood or lifestyle pulls from each piece.

Her artwork has been exhibited in numerous solo and juried exhibitions. She has won competitions at both local and international levels. Evalynn states, “Perfecting ones technique while experimenting is always a part of my work. Creating movement filled with the emotion of the moment becomes an intriguing experiment for me. I am always searching for answers in my art. I know, should I find these answers, my need to create might no longer exist.”
