After teaching at rural Saskatchewan schools until 1948, Evoy moved to Edmonton and took jobs with the Alberta Highways Department, Edmonton City Engineers, and the Hudson's Bay Company as a layout artist. He then studied painting at the University of Alberta under H.G. Glyde, earning his Bachelor of Education degree in 1967. In 1972, he earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the same institution. Evoy taught at an Edmonton high school beginning in 1964, and began to paint professionally at the same time.
