Evelyne Boren’s Open Studio in Sayulita


Face it – you will likely  have few opportunities to visit a seaside artist’s studio, where said artist is a former James Bond girl as well as the first woman to swim with a killer whale. Yes, we’re talking about Evelyne Boren, who once again opens up her studio for a weekly peak at her beloved art as well as into her exotic life in Sayulita.

Every Wednesday, from 2-5pm between January and April, Evelyne Boren’s studio in Casa Bougainvillea, Sayulita is open to visit, where her original watercolors and oils, as well as posters and note cards, are available for purchase. She enjoys worldwide recognition for her impressionistic art interpretations of life, people and scenes of Mexico, the Southwest, and Europe in watercolor and oil paintings.

Much of her Mexico work features daily scenes from life in Punta Mita, Sayulita, and Puerto Vallarta. Evelyne is considered among the finest artists showing in the region, and she also maintains a permanent studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to the weekly Open Studio Wednesdays, private showings can also be arranged by appointment. Connect with her via email, or tel. 329-291-3095.

We know–you’re curious about the James Bond girl part, aren’t you? Evelyne’s life reads like an adventure story—born in Munich, Germany, she was schooled in Switzerland and England prior to moving to the United States. Before beginning her full-time professional career as an artist, Evelyne had an aquatic career that included underwater stunt doubling in the James Bond films “Thunderball” and “You Only Live Twice”. She was the first woman in the world to swim with a killer whale in the movie “Namu the Killer Whale”, and also appeared frequently in the television series “Sea Hunt”, “Aquanauts” and “Flipper” where she helped train the star dolphin.

We’re happy she turned her attention and passion to art, as her canvases so beautifully capture the magic and light of life here. She has more then 4,000 original paintings in private and corporate collections around the world. Recently PBS came to  Sayulita  to  film Eelyne for a one hour special featuring her as among the top 10  Artists of New Mexico .

Looking ahead, Evelyne will be featured in a solo exhibit at Galeria des Artistes, Puerto Vallarta, opening on February 26 — her 38th year as a featured artists in Vallarta!

In Santa Fe, Evelyne is represented by the prestigious Gallery Nedra Matteucci. Her work will be featured in a one-woman exhibition opening October 14, 2011.
