Painter born at Ranmoor, Sheffield, as Evelyn Davy. She studied at the Slade School, 1895-98 where she shared a painting prize with Augustus John. She was dogged with chronic ill-health as a result of Bright's disease, leaving her only able to paint for short periods. Her husband, Charles Cheston, whom she married in 1904, was however a constant help and inspiration and they worked together plein-air until her untimely death at the age of fifty-four. One of the finest exponents of her day in the art of painting in watercolour she was elected a member of the NEAC in 1907. A memorial exhibition was held at the Mappin Art Gallery, Sheffield, 1931 and at the RWS. Examples of her work are in the collection of the Slade School and the Tate Gallery. She died at Axminster, Devon.
