about the artist
After a 39 year hiatus, this self-taught artist only recently resurrected his innate ability to create his own brand of art. In the course of the revival, Everna believes that the absence of formal training actually worked in his favor. He is void of any inhibitions, thus allowing him complete freedom of expression without being shackled to any one style or medium.
Actually, Everna has vigorously avoided labels and never considered himself an artist in the traditional sense. He prefers to be thought of as a “pictorial storyteller”. The depth and intensity of the stories in his works are only limited by the interpretation of the viewer.
