As the chief educator at Paintbox, Evelyn oversees the training and development of artists in nail specialty, artistry, continuing education, creating content for social media, and offering expert advice on but not limited to education/nail health-based articles. She can be found taking clients at Paintbox and freelancing for major fashion brands, while bridging the gap between the salon and editorial side of nail specialty. Evelyn's expertise has been featured in MindBodyGreen, Cosmo, and Byrdie. 


Within Evelyn's 18+ year career, she's worked in a funeral home as a licensed funeral director for seven years with a specialty in embalming, and obtained a degree in anthropology, participating in an archeological field study in Romania. While this may seem far-fetched from nail artistry, these experiences have shaped her skills in research and anatomy.
