Bev is a White Rock, B.C. artist who works in acrylics and pastels. Sunlit autumn scenes, golden evening light, trees and water are favourite subjects. She also likes to paint old buildings with a sense of mystery, their past and the people who lived in them. Bev strives to capture the feeling of a place using impressionistic colour and rearranging the scene to produce a mood, rather than a realistic depiction.
Bev grew up in northern B.C. and moved to Vancouver Island after attending U.B.C. She studied art at the University of Victoria and Malaspina College. She exhibits with the Fraser Valley Chapter of the Federation, Pastel Artists Canada and the Granville Island Gallery.
My paintings are a reaction to beauty and place. The viewer should feel a connection and appreciation of the painting, rather than ask, "What did the artist mean?"
