Born into a musical family, Everist discovered his passion for the Fine Arts at a very young age. Attending the Ontario College Of Art in his teens, he discovered the many genres of creation that led him to the canvas and palette knife.
Everist believes that a painting should not be just two dimensional, but rather an experience for the rest of your senses. He does not just paint an image, but sculpts a leaf or flower with dramatic manipulation of the palette knife.
The colours and textures of Everist’s paintings invite you to “Touch” the canvas. “Feel” the leaves and “Listen”,and observe how the changing light throughout the day brings life to the image.
