“Evelyn Henson is dedicated to creating colorful fine art and gifts that inspire you to lead a brightly decorated life.”
I had the pleasure of chatting with Evelyn and she’s as joyful and colorful as her artwork!
Evelyn graduated from college and wasn’t quite sure what she wanted to do next. She loved drawing and painting and was encouraged to open an Etsy shop. She realized fairly quickly that the city illustrations really resonated with people (me included). And basically, the rest is history!
I came across her Richmond print on Pinterest years ago and fell in love. I also love seeing her Instagram postings. I just loved the whimsical look of so many of my favorite Richmond sites – Lewis Ginter, Maymont and Belle Isle, among others. I love to decorate our home with bright, whimsical artwork and I love RVA so this was just perfect.
“EH began with the mission to create higher quality illustrations for colorful southern homes.”
Evelyn’s art is strongly influenced by her southern roots which I love. Her “map series” has grown exponentially featuring over 100 places (and new ones popping up regularly). What a fun gallery wall to create with your favorite destinations! These also make perfect gifts for those new to the city, or those moving away as a wonderful and colorful memory.
Her “brightly decorated life series” is full of bright flowers, whimsical animals, colorful food and some beautiful nautical prints sure to make any home happy!
