Evalyn Gertrude James was a teacher, professor, lecturer and working artist. She is thought to be the daughter of Eva Gertrude James. Her residences were Indianapolis and Brazil, Indiana. James was educated at Herron School of Art and Earlham College and also held two degrees from Indiana University. After being the head of the art department at Jefferson High School in Lafayette, she resigned to become head of the Fine Art department at Indiana State University (then called Indiana State Teachers College of Terre Haute). She was also the chairman of the state committee on art courses for schools in Indiana.

Known for her skill with brushwork, James primarily used oil and watercolor as mediums. Most of her work consists of landscapes, which were painted in locations such as Terre Haute and Bloomington. Her works are said to be known for their vitality and color choices and were exhibited at a number of places including: the Pettis Gallery, the Richmond Annual Exhibition, and the Hoosier Salon.
