Evangeline is also a practicing artist and member of the Working Class Creative database which aims to increase the number of working class people in creative industries. Evangeline graduated from Leeds Beckett University in 2020 with a BA Honours degree in fine art and from puppet making to constructing sensory spaces, Evangeline has a passion for creating opportunities for play and exploration. As an artist that puts interaction at the heart of her work she wants to support young people to engage in their creative journeys.

She is also influenced by the several years she worked for The Lego Company; gaining an insight to how young people learn through their creativity. This motivated her into wanting to contribute towards positive change in education settings. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, camping and forages throughout the year. Evangeline is hoping to one day buy a canal boat and set up an art studio for freelance artists and herself to use.
