For Beverley, Mosaic Art is a culmination of all of her creative passions from a very early age including portraiture, needlepoint, quilting, ceramics, incessant drawing and an adoration for color! She uses many types of media in her art including glass, ceramics, beads, tiles and unique found treasures.
Beverley’s education and professional background includes graphic design, so composition is in her nature, and to apply this in a 3-dimensional way, creating a detailed extravaganza of tactile shape and color is supremely rewarding to her. Beverley is thrilled when people enjoy the artwork that she has gained such satisfaction in creating.
Beverley received her Associate’s Degree in Graphic Design, Textile Design and Fine Art from St. Albans College of Art and Design, St. Albans, England in 1985.
