Evelyne was born in Maria, Gaspesie, on the east coast of Quebec (Canada) in 1981. She moved to the United States in 2009 to completed an MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts at the the School of Art and Design at Alfred University (Alfred, NY) where she also taught photography. When Evelyne was a child, she wanted to be an architect. She drew floor plans for dream houses and imagined various staircases and swimming pools of all shapes and sizes that could be found within. Throughout her adolescence, maps of the world began to replace the floor plans of homes. It was at eighteen, on a trip to Europe, with the gift of a small camera from her mother, that her interest for photography developed. It is with the camera that she would construct and 'deconstruct' these living spaces that fascinated her. Upon her return to Quebec, she enrolled at the Cégep du Vieux-Montreal where she earned a diploma in photography in 2003. She continued her studies in Fine Arts, majoring in photography at Concordia University, Montreal. She completed the last semester of her Bachelor's at City University of Hong Kong in the spring of 2008, where she continued her exploration of screen and lens based media. Her travels in China were followed up by another art residency in Belfast, Northern Ireland, at the Queen Street Studio. Her work has been exhibited and published in Austria, Canada, China, Ireland, Spain and USA. She is currently a faculty member in the department of Art & Art History at the University of Rochester (Rochester, NY) and teach lens based and installation art.
