Evelyn Doenike works mostly with Acrylics, using a mixture of collage and layers of paint. Additionally, she uses special techniques, working in graphite, sand, tar and similar materials with a spatula.

Oftentimes, her signatures or printed letters add to the content of the painting. She also works in images with secret meanings into the painting. It is important to Evelyn that her paintings create dreams and fantasies and allow each onlooker to interpret her works. Various states of mind appear and meld together in all of her works.
