Alana's passion for creativity started as a child growing up in Penticton, BC, in the wine and orchard region of Canada. Evans was entered into juried art shows and festivals at elementary age. After moving to the Greater Vancouver region and excelling at art studies in high-school, Evans was accepted to into the Visual Arts Degree program at Emily Carr University of Art and design. Upon completing her degree program with a BFA in Visual Arts, she took time to develop her career in professional architectural building material sales.
Alana has been reconnecting with her art practice over the past 7 years and has been involved with an art collective 'I HEART ART'. Evans is currently involved in her community as elected board member of the Langley Arts Council in the Fraser Valley BC.
