Beverly has been painting award-winning portraits, still life and traditional landscapes for over 16 years, and ethereal landscapes for the past seven. She is drawn to combining the spiritual and physical realms of the world through nature and light in her paintings. She believes that nature has a timelessness that reflects the past, present and future. Her paintings present a remarkable interpretation of the world as we might see it and imagine it.
Born and raised in Southern California and working as a tax analyst for many years, Beverly then moved to the Sierra Foothills in Northern California and in 2006 began to focus on her first love of acrylic and oil painting. She is inspired by the beauty around her and also from traveling to amazing places.
When creating a painting, Beverly starts with a vision of a finished painting and then creates sketches, collects pertinent photos, and develops the composition detail. While listening to music that takes her to another place, she uses acrylic paint to block in the lights and darks and then she gradually works on the detail, applying many layers of either acrylic or oil paint to attain the awe of her original inspiration.
In addition to earning numerous awards, Beverly’s works are on display in a number of private collections and available for viewing and purchase at Gold Country Artists Gallery in Placerville, CA.
