"Drawing is a way of thinking... and etching, because I work in layers, is a way of drawing that gives me a fresh way of thinking. It allows me to slip into another world..."

Beverley has been drawing and printmaking for over twelve years. After receiving a first class degree in Fine Art from Canterbury Christ Church University, she then undertook her MA in Fine Art Printmaking. Beverley continues to make her own work, specialising in large colour etchings, but also drawing, painting and making digital works on an iPad. She has had exhibitions both locally and nationally, including exhibitions in London and Edinburgh, as well as having her work in individual private collections and corporation collections in the UK and New York. Beverley particularly loves the magic of deep etching, employing many varied techniques and using vibrant colours. Her techniques within the world of etching are unorthodox; using a variety of methods on each plate such as etching, aquatint, drypoint, spitbite, electric tools and any experimental method that achieves the desired result. Her work is figurative but leaves room for viewers to use their own imagination. Beverley likes to work in series, making multiple etchings than can be hung individually or part of a coherent group.

Beverley has also completed a PGCE, and runs workshops in secondary schools and institutions of higher education. She currently teaches at Sir Roger Manwood's Grammar School in Sandwich, Kent, as well as offering private art tuition to people of all ages. She regularly volunteers at the Pilgrims Hospice in Margate, running art classes for patients. Before following her lifelong passion for art, Beverley was a chef and restauranteur. She is married with a daughter.
