Beverly Fotheringham

Beverly Fotheringham is a prolific artist in all forms of water media, watercolor, acrylic, mixed water media, and miniatures. Beverly earned her initial reputation in the Pacific Northwest, where she became widely recognized for her unique style of watercolor and mixed water media painting. Beverly has evolved a highly personal style that reflects her deep interest and understanding in the techniques and formal structure of classical painting. The discipline of golden section geometry and her years of formal artistic training show through her work as a confident competency that is often startling to those who encounter her work for the first time.

A Student of Light

Beverly is a student of light and the way it enhances our visual experience. Her works have investigated the luminous effects of backlit florals and nature scenes that glow warmly across a rich pallet of color.  She has also turned her creative insight onto the myriad effects inherent in reflections on water and other reflective surfaces. Beverly works from a core interest in representational images, but often treats realism with a unique perspective that crosses the boundary between realism and abstraction.
