Late in the evening, as the sun was setting, “Just Raven” by Eva Lewarne completed its journey from Toronto to La Casa de Inspiracion on Mayne Island.
This shape-shifting spirit bird drew me to it with the same power as my painting colleague Eva does herself. With paintings sometimes leaning three and four deep in the studio loft, I am not exactly sure yet what “Just Raven” has in store for us but I am prepared to let the mystery unfold.
Eva Lewarne was born in Poland but has lived mostly in Canada. She is a graduate of Toronto’s Ontario College of Art and Design, and has always painted. Among the many awards she received is a Grand Prix Medal in a Painting Festival in Avignon, France. Her art was shown at the Grand Palais in Paris and she has had exhibitions worldwide. And in 2016 she received an AWARD OF EXCELLENCE from Manhattan Arts International.
