— About me, social media, and how to get in touch
I am a London born artist making figurative expressionist paintings from life. Using a variety of mark making techniques and rapid brush strokes - my aim is to express the movement and lyrical quality of my subjects.
My fascination in capturing movement stems from the belief that everything we encounter around us has a vibrational energy, and has therefore always been the driving force behind my work. In this respect I began the first 10 years of my career making short stop-frame animation films, before venturing to Mexico to develop my work as a painter between 2005-11. In Mexico I settled in Oaxaca and began selling my paintings in the street, which resulted in a solo exhibition “Momentos Musicales” at the “Museo del Palacio” in Oaxaca City.
Since returning to London I've shown in several group and solo exhibitions, shortlisted twice for the National Open Art competition (2014 and 2016) , selected to exhibit at the Cello Factory for The 83rd London Group Open (2017), selected to exhibit at the WAC Awards 2018 at The Bishops Palace in Wells. I have also been awarded a Drawing Scholarship with The New English Artist Club (2018-19) which will culminate in exhibiting in June 2019 at The Mall Galleries.
Beverley’s studio is currently situated in Mornington Crescent next door to Frank Auerbach - an uncanny coincidence since the work of Leon Kossoff (who previously inhabited the same studio in 1950-53), and Auerbach have had a significant influence on her work .
My current work explores similar techniques used by the abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock, employing them figuratively, with a view to bringing disused technology back to life as works of art in themselves.
