Born in Colorado, Evan Orman studied cello at the North Carolina School of the Arts, the Banff Centre in Canada, and the New England Conservatory. He made his first bow in 1994 and subsequently worked in the shop of Denver violin maker, Rock Eggen. Having regularly attended the bow making workshop at Oberlin College since 1999, Evan honed his skills while working with many of today's leading makers, including Stéphane Thomachot, Eric Grandchamp, Lee Guthrie, Jean Grunberger, Steven Beckley, and many others. His bows are in the hands of several top players, including Edward Dusinberre of the Takács Quartet, and cellists Rainer Eudeikis and Jeremiah Campbell. He currently works from his shop in the Alliance Française building in Denver.
