Welsh artist, Evelyn Williams was born in 1929 and has been painting pictures since she left A. S. Neil’s famous Summerhill School at the age of 14. She went to St Martin’s School of Art and then to The Royal College of Art. It is Evelyn’s ability to give a timeless and classical form to the specifics of a very personal and contemporary range of human emotions – loves and dreams as well as fears and anxieties – which makes Evelyn’s work unique within contemporary British art.

Her tender, intimate and emotional paintings are concerned with the subtleties and complexities of relationships and the human predicament. Her very personal paintings have followed her progress through life as child, lover, mother and grandmother.

In 1961 Evelyn Williams won first prize for sculpture in the John Moores competition, and over the years has had recognition in many public galleries including a retrospective exhibition at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1972. Her work is in numerous public and private collections, including the National Museum of Wales, the Contemporary Art Society for Wales, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Cambridge University and the British Arts Council.
