John Borden Evans was born in 1956 in Edinburgh, Scotland to American parents. He graduated from Davidson College as a studio art major and has been painting ever since.

Thirty-four years ago, he and his wife moved to an old farm house in North Garden, Virginia. There they raised two children and now John spends a lot of time looking after his four grandchildren who all live nearby. John enjoys working in his garden, building things and being a good neighbor.

Over the years, John’s paintings have become more and more about place. That place is his immediate environment, the cattle fields, the trees, the fences and the skies.

His textured acrylic paintings have been shown in numerous galleries across the South, including Charlotte, Atlanta, Washington DC, Nashville, Columbia, SC, and Raleigh, NC.
