Evelin Juen – creative at an early age!
The impulse for creative process showed itself very early and affected the further development of my life. At the beginning there was drawing, painting, inventing of forms. Soon writing and music came. Now, all of them join into one synergetic ensemble. The love of life in all its wonderful variations and the curiosity for what is the strange and for what is the familiar, provides ideas, inspiration is rooted in spirituality. This symbiosis result in the creative whole.

At what age did you know you wanted to be an artist?
What is the earliest artwork you did that you can remember?
Which classical or contemporary artists have inspired you?
I love especially Italian Renaissance and their represents, but I am open for every expression of art, that touches me and makes me admire the gifts of talent. So, no special person or style for inspiration, it always depends on the moment, when an artwork speaks to me…
How would you describe your artistic style?
When did you first sell an artwork? How did you feel?
My first sale I had when I was 16. The secretary of the mayor of my hometown saw the Easter eggs that I had made for my mother, when she visited us. She immediately ordered 40 eggs for a big Easter decoration and payed me really well. I used water color and pencil, painting birds, flowers, and many different natural scenes, and she still! hangs up this eggs at Easter.
I felt great, of course, happy that for somebody it was worth so much money for something I made wtih my imagination, my creativity and my skill.
I still feel thankful and full of joy, because this woman treated the eggs so carefully and like precious things, that the eggs over lived decades until now.

Tell us a bit about your personal life ...
I live in a small town in the Tyrolean mountain region. Surrounded by my garden, forests, lakes, green grass and farmers fields, I couldn´t guess to live somewhere else, although the world showed me already many desire places. I am blessed, cause I can live with and from my art and with people I love. Nevertheless life is life, and, as people from the alps always use to say: “live is hard in the mountains” ;-))
I see whats going on in the world, but try to stay positive and make this world a little bit better as far as I can. In my work as a visual artist, I am not critical, not showing cruelity, not indict facts of politics, bad social conditions or unfairness in life. This is what I do with words, when I am writing stories or texts for songwriting. In my visual expression, I counter steer all the bad that happens, through artworks that make you feel good, happy and – in the best case -that gives a kind of comfort, shelter and good feeling.

Evelin Juen's Expression
“It is important for me to create a poetic and mystic atmosphere in my artworks, not everything of the story I tell in my pictures is visible, it is always a secret in it and includes the wish, that the beholder gets involved deeper, by the feeling, that I try to deliver in my “pictured poems.”
