Beverley works from her studio in Swindon, Wiltshire. She graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (Drawing for Fine Art Practice) from Bath University in 2011 and was selected the same year for the Cork Street Open Exhibition, London. She takes part in local art initiatives including Swindon Open Studios, the Swindon Film Festival, the Swindon Literature Festival and other local themed exhibitions. Beverley is a member of the United Society of Artists, London, which holds an annual exhibition in London and satellite exhibitions across the South of England throughout the year, and is also a member of West Ox Arts, which holds an annual exhibition in its gallery in Bampton, Oxfordshire.
Beverley's work is a translation of her own experience of place. She sketches on site and takes hundreds of photographs, but her paintings are begun in her studio. It is a visual, physical and emotional response involving interplay of mixed media and a seeking-out of a tangible memory. Painterly layers and a flatter planarity combine and give rise to a new sensual space for her – a space in which to feel rather than to think notions of vulnerability, security, reparation and resolution.
The Seaford Series is in response to an extended visit to the beach at Seaford, a quiet and secluded seaside resort located at the foot of the South Downs in East Sussex, U.K. It's landscape offers panoramic views of land, sea and white cliffs but it was the intimate details beneath her feet that made a lasting impression.
