this is a very new work and shows my interest in space, movement and surface. Some works just develop naturally and confidently on their own.
Evy Olsen Halvorsen (aka Halvorsen Holstein) lives in the Pacific Northwest and was born in northern Norway. Evy and her parents immigrated in 1956 to the neighborhood of Ballard in Seattle WA. After graduation from Ballard High School Evy moved briefly to San Francisco before landing in Kitsap County with husband and daughters. After her daughters grew up she continued her education at Cornish College of the Arts, receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts, cum laude in 1999, in Painting and Printmaking. “Perhaps because of the landscape of my childhood I am drawn to creating a sense of space, color. Norway is a dramatic country especially the islands I come from which are above the Arctic circle. I love that open country, sharp mountains rising out of the sea, the quickly changing sky. Not unlike the home I have here, water, mountains and open skies.”
