Trish Evers

Trish EversPatricia “Trish” Evers, age 50, of Wheaton, died in her home June 7, 2000 after a prolonged battle with cancer—a uterine sarcoma. She was a teacher, a prominent award-winning artist, and co-founder of the Awakenings Project.

Trish, who painted for much of her career under her married name, Patricia Cobb, was committed to the visual arts and education throughout her life. She was a 1967 graduate of West Senior High School, Aurora, IL. In 1971 she received a Bachelors Degree in Art Education from Northern Illinois University. After graduating from N.I.U., she taught art in the southwestern suburbs of Chicago. A longtime member of the DuPage Art League, Trish also established and maintained her own art studio through the 1980’s, first on “Gallery Row” in St. Charles, and then at the “Windstone Creative Arts Studio” in Glen Ellyn, which is the space she bequeathed to Awakenings. She explained that she “always felt that the process of art making was more of a calling than a career.”
