Artist Biography 





Evelyn Stebbins

Born: Nutley, New Jersey, graduated from Nutley High School
University: Art Major at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ

Evelyn was a fashion buyer for Macy's New York stores in the 1950's.  Joined Allied Stores' Joskes Gulfgate in Houston, Texas in 1956. 
Evelyn married Charles Stebbins in 1959, who promptly made her quit the Fashion Industry and re-start her painting career.  Now in her true field, her career took off in shows, galleries and awards.  She had seven (7) one-woman shows in a prominent Houston gallery before opening her own studio and gallery in Kemah, Texas.

Evelyn and Charlie developed her studio into a major art gallery in the Houston-Galveston Bay area.  The gallery featured a nationally known conservator, master framers and art classes with Evelyn as the primary instructor.  After 20 very successful years, she closed the gallery to devote full-time to painting.

Evelyn studied under many prominent artists, among them: Elliott O'Hara (watercolors), Dong Kingman (watercolors), Doug Walton (watercolors, mixed media), Ed Whitney (watercolors), Zoltan Szabo (watercolors). 

Evelyn is a signature member of the Texas Watercolor Society, and has held memberships in the Houston Art League, and the Southwestern Watercolor Society.
