Focusing on nature and its strengths of light, vivid colour and texture, Bev's work, evokes the tranquil qualities of nature. Light plays on her thickly applied oils, which are sculpted in a neo-impressionist style, bringing the scenes to life on her canvasses. On close inspection, viewers are engaged in the purity of colour, and the succulent tactility evoked by the strokes of her palette knife. At a distance, the scene is revealed, and as the viewer moves, the paintings continually transform themselves as new colours are exposed at different angles. Under natural light, the paintings magically evolve throughout the day, as the shifting light plays with underlying tones, and the depth of the sculpted relief.

Bev was formally trained in Fine Art at the University of Toronto, and Film and Photographic Arts at Ryerson University. She has since spent more than two decades developing a growing reputation with her unique style. Her artistic accomplishments have received accolades at her successful solo and group shows, corporate displays, commissions, consignments of her work at Toronto galleries, and at auctions benefiting not-for-profit organizations. Her works belong to collections in Australia, Canada, Switzerland, U.K., and the U.S.A. Bev's Bluebell Forest was selected and hung at the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2007, London, U.K.
