B

ev was born and raised on Vancouver Island with a natural talent for art. Her talent has taken her on a life long journey finding various artistic outlets along the way. Her journey began working as a Hairstylist, then for many years owning a craft and painting store (specializing in teaching Folk-art) and in recent years Bev’s artistic talents have taken another direction working as a Kitchen Designer. While always continuing to paint, Bev never quite found enough time to follow her passion…painting. Painting full time for then now, finding herself more fulfilled and motivated than ever. “Painting is what I love to do, it feeds my soul. Being able to paint on a regular basis gives me the opportunity to explore and discover the artist that has been waiting inside of me all these years. As I finish one painting, there is always another painting in my mind, just waiting to be created .I love finding the light in the painting that make it come alive. My goal is to evoke a special memory or feelings, from

Currently, Bev enjoys realism and representative painting, in both Acrylic and Oils, on canvas. Bev has a new energy to her work and is discovering and learning new techniques in her continuing journey to follow her passion.

or a glass and creates an abstract design amongst the reality. In my art I try to unveil how what you see is not always what you think something should look like but when you paint as you see it becomes real and recognizable. Currently, I enjoy realism and representative painting, in both Acrylic and Oils, on canvas. I have a new energy in my work and am discovering and learning new techniques in my continuing journey to follow my passion.
