Beverly Ann Wells

Beverly Ann Wells is a regional artist from Washington, Missouri. She won several awards at an early age exhibiting at East Central College where she received her Associates Degree in Fine Art. After working as a graphic artist in the sign industry for over 20 years, she has recently returned to the fine art of oil painting and has participated in the Washington Art Fair and Wine Fest in Washington, where she won an Honorable Mention. Beverly Ann also worked for a period of time at Whitegate Montessori School in Dutzow, Missouri where she discovered her love of teaching children. Her latest endeavor has been the creation of the non profit Community Art Center, ARTCanDo, where she serves as the Artistic Director, instructor of the after-school programs for children, and also Oil Painting. Beverly Ann paints in a style of realism using many layers and soft focus edges that give her work an atmospheric quality, producing a distinctly emotional esthetic tone, mood and character. “My approach to painting is to try and capture the honesty of a subject, to convey the absolute harmony and rhythm of that which stirs the senses.”
