Shropshire based artist Bev Davies depicts animals and wildlife with a fresh, expressive style which captures the characters of her subjects. Applying a monochrome palette, Bev combines subtle, earthy tones through mediums of watercolour, pen and ink.
Having studied at Wrexham art college over 35 years ago, Bev obtained a BA in 3D Glass Design, this led to her pursuing a career in glass design and with her husband (also a glass artist) opened their own business specialising in contemporary lighting and installations.
A recent change in circumstances coinciding with the global pandemic meant that Bev stayed at home and consequently picked up her paintbrush once again. This resulted in a collection of paintings where she depicted herself as a goldfish - a representation of her feelings of isolation and loneliness during her time of shielding.
'I enjoy the challenge of interpreting new subjects with my emerging and evolving style and palette of techniques. I am on a never-ending journey to find new ways to innovate and add extra depth to my work.'
