“I paint because I have a need for the way art adds balance to my life. I think of painting as a language, a translation of subject and essence into the language of the medium. Graceful flowers, light effects in serene landscapes, the innocent gesture of a child, the joyful movement of a dancer, light and shadow shaping personality in a face…I want to share with the viewer that which captivates me.”
Beverly Sneath grew up in rural Ridgeville. A love of Nature and gardening is reflected in her work. Watercolour is a favoured medium in subjects including portraits, florals, landscapes and nature portraits, animals, children, dancers and ethereal fairies. She also produces acrylics, silk paintings and bronze sculpture.
With many years of experience she teaches weekly classes in watercolour and acrylics as well as workshops for adult groups. Bev also offers art workshops for elementary schools. Summer Art Camps for kids are held at the Gallery on the Lake in Buckhorn each summer.
