Bev 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. Bev finds inspirations in capturing the light as it hits the flowers in the gardens around her and the movement and light of the ever changing ocean, lakes, and skies of the beautiful Island where she lives and wherever she travels. 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.
