Rachel Evans is a creative soul and compulsive "maker" who has followed her curiosity into many different fields of work and study including animal welfare, trades/construction and the film industry. Primarily inspired by nature, especially animals, her work focuses on biological processes and cultural relationships to the natural world. Rachel's art employs a variety of media/ methods including drawing, analogue film, scratch animation and sculpture to re-enchant people with forgotten elements of the natural world on a phenomenological, mythical and personal level.
Rachel grew up in Red Deer Alberta, and graduated with honors from the University of Victoria in 2007, majoring in sculpture and drawing. In 2013 she moved to Calgary Alberta where she learned animation and analogue filmmaking at Quickdraw Animation Society. Her current focus is on experimental analogue filmmaking, combined with digital editing techniques.
In 2015/16 she ran a small independent art gallery in Calgary, Alberta called The Room Gallery. Click the link below to learn more about The Room and the artists that showed there.
