After 25 years as a corporate executive, Beverly returned to art undertaking master studies with several of the country’s leading abstract teachers. She now blends and shares her passions - fine art, art-based learning, mentoring and leadership development - through Santa Fe Artist Getaway. In 2018, Beverly began painting in Santa Fe, and wanted to give other creatives the same experience, opening Santa Fe Artist Getaway in 2020. Through large-scale abstract painting, Beverly interprets nature. Connects with ideas. And explores emotion. Her painting process is physical, using hardware-store brushes. Broken sticks. Rags. And hands. To move paint. To add layers. To pull back layers. To drip. To scrape and wipe. And to pull the paint across the surface. Beverly grew up in rural America near Union, Nebraska. Often happily lost for hours in the open prairie landscape that inspires her work today.
