Renew, Heal, & Grow
SERVING EASTERN NC & THE WORLD ONLINE


Do you remember how easy it was to make art as a child...when you only cared about what it meant to you?  So many people miss out on the benefits of art because at some point, they began to believe they were no longer "good enough."

 

Art by Preference creates an encouraging environment for learners of all ages to flourish as individuals and artists through virtual art instruction, one-on-one and workshops, and virtual paint parties.  Through the creation of her own original art, Preference inspires people of all ages to connect art-making to personal experiences and renew, heal, and grow.

Art is life, why separate the two?

PREFERENCE EVANS, OWNER & FOUNDER
 

YES, MY REAL NAME IS PREFERENCE!
I like to refer to myself as an artist who has always wanted to be an artist...Let me explain.  I have always been naturally artistic, by way of my mother who named me.  (Super short version, she wanted a girl and got her preference.) I haven't always made art consistently, so this is an ongoing goal.  For the record, I am from eastern North Carolina, USA. 

​My goal and purpose are to help the world see how art connects to life so that they can benefit mentally, emotionally, and spiritually from the art-making process through art classes, art workshops, and private sessions, online. Thanks for allowing me to be your preference for making art... make sense.
