Evelyn Kolijn: An international childhood and a Master's degree in Anthropology from the Rijksuniversiteit Leiden, The Netherlands, nurtured Evelyn's interest in the diversity of human culture and nature. She graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design with a BFA in print media in 2008. She is a board member of the Alberta Printmakers Society. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and is a visiting artist with a solo-exhibition in the Dutch Antilles in July 2009. The exhibition theme, "Integrating art, natural science, and environmental awareness", reflects the subject matter of her practice. Evelyn is an artist-mentor in "THIS IS MY CITY", an initiative by the City of Calgary, in which artists will guide homeless citizens in the process of artistic expression and developing projects for public display throughout 2009.
