I really love Bev’s floral paintings. In our previous feature of Bev’s work we looked at the way the artist captures vivid detail, and colour, showcasing every plane and contour of a flower’s petals while leaving space for shapes and hues that are almost brighter than life. Bev brings this pleasant sense of reality-taken-up-a-notch to many of her artworks, including those of birds and wildlife. I’m impressed by the way the artist renders eyes, lending a sense of bright personality to all of her living subjects.

In her Scenic Landscapes gallery, Bev captures beauty with a poignant twinge of isolation -- vast landscapes are treated to beautifully delicate lighting and textures, with not a human or animal figure in sight.
