Beverley’s paintings and works evolved through her desire and fascination to spontaneously capture movement and expression. This desire evolved over time as she has experimented with and studied many artistic mediums including drawing, animation, photography and assemblage.
Beverley rediscovered her desire to paint whilst travelling to Mexico in 2004 after a long career in animation. Captivated by the light and indigenous culture she decided to remain there, where for 5 years she contributed to the vibrant and highly respected artistic community of Oaxaca de Juarez by painting and exhibiting her works.
During the last 2 years Beverley’s work has focused on the theme of painting local Oaxacan musicians which has culminated in a solo exhibition sponsored by the Government’s Secretary of Culture at the “Museo Del Palacio” in Oaxaca, 2011 and more recently at the Mexican Chamber of Commerce in London. The bright hues of her palette directly reflect this experience and are now carried forward into her current work back in her London studio where she continues the theme of painting musicians.
Beverley ‘s expressionist style takes her inspiration from the post second world war period known as The London School , such artists as Frank Auerbach , Leon Kossoff, and Johnathan Bratby as well as the impressionists. Beverley never copies or paints from a photograph. Instead she insists that the intense energy of the subject can only be captured by listening to live music and observing from actual life in the moment. It is the physical movement, sentiment and energy that affect her own direct expression.
Beverley’s work is sold internationally and her clients include customers from Japan, New Zealand, Canada, USA and UK.
