Artist bio:

Maurice Evans’ creative focus was first realized through the lens of music. Born in Smyrna, TN, his father was a military man but also a gifted drummer and singer in a gospel choir. He introduced Maurice to guitar lessons at the age of 4, and these lessons along with his exposure to the music of Al Green, Chaka Khan and Marvin Gaye, inspired his early, creative growth. As his family settled in Georgia, Maurice began to draw more upon his artistic instincts in high school due to his parent’s divorce and the stunting of his musical outlet by not being selected to join the school band. His mother, a teacher, supported and reinforced his creative ability by allowing him to help design her classroom bulletin boards each year. By the time Maurice graduated, he not only gained recognition as a talented artist at Griffin High School, but also the confidence to pursue his passion.

In 1986, he was accepted to the Art Institute of Atlanta where he studied Fashion Illustration to intentionally advance his painting and drawing skills.
