About

An Artist Rescue

Evelyn is originally from New Jersey and Delaware, and has now lived in the Sarasota/Manatee county area of Florida for over 25 years. She received a Bachelors Degree from the University of Delaware and has also attended The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Ringling College of Art and Design.

In 1984 Evelyn began exploring the world, visiting 48 of the 50 states as a scenic artist with Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus. She now continues to explore the country through the educational and conservation efforts of Haai, Inc. Shark Encounter, the family business.  Evelyn’s travels throughout the United States, Europe, Mexico and Canada along with a year residency in Japan have shown a wide diversity of life and given her the opportunity to share experiences through art.

In 2007 Evelyn adopted a nine year old Boxer female named Tilly through Florida Boxer Rescue. She wanted to help this wonderful organization but realized she would be a “Foster Flunky,” keeping any Boxer in search of a “furever” home, so she decided to help them through her art. Evelyn donates her work to rescues and shelters around the country to raise funds that directly help animals in need and their caretakers. Her dog portraits have recently been published in 1000 Dog Portraits - From the People Who Love Them.

Evelyn’s work is represented by Rhea Chiles’ Studio at Gulf and Pine on Anna Maria Island Florida, and held in private collections throughout the US, Canada, Australia, France, Spain and the Netherlands. Evelyn is a member of The Petticoat Painters, one of the oldest, continuously exhibiting women’s art groups in the United States. She serves on the governing board of Myakka River State Park with a dedication to bring artists and nature together. WILD: Artists and Animals of Myakka, an annual fundraiser featuring top artists of the Sarasota area is curated by Evelyn.

Evelyn shares her 12-acre home Barking Dog Ranch, with her husband Philip, two dogs, visiting horses, sharks, and the occasional sea lion visiting from next door. Her life is a menagerie of the people, places and happenings of a distinctive south Florida experience.
If you are interested in your own custom pet portrait I would love to hear from you. Please contact me here at Etsy and we can work together to achieve your heart's desire!

Shop policies

Thank you for visiting my shop and checking my policies. If you have any questions that are not answered here, contact me at evelyn [!at] evelynmccorristinpeters.com

For custom portraits please allow a minimum of 3 weeks for oil paintings (this may vary dependant on workload, holidays, and size of commission). I will do my best to capture the individuality of your animal, but I need your help by receiving well taken photos. Please send at least two clear, high resolution jpeg photos. If you are unsure of how to do this, contact me and we'll work together to obtain your pictures. My style is represented in the examples shown on this site so the final piece will be reflective of this and not dramatically different. I extend all my effort to ensure you will be satisfied with your piece.

For any custom accessory pieces or jewelry a minimum of 2 weeks is required. All pieces already created and not custom will be shipped as soon as possible, usually within one week.

All images created from the photos you provide are copyright protected, the buyer is not entitled to reproduction rights. Please do not print or reproduce my work without permission.
