Artist Bio

Beverly Bell was born and raised in the Detroit, Michigan area, where music was abundant, thriving and free-flowing. She later moved to San Diego where she currently resides, carrying the sounds, rhythm and energy of Detroit and Chicago with her.

Beverly is a life-long artist, formally trained, but believing that every artist is self-taught and inspired from within. Beverly’s works have been displayed in galleries throughout Southern California and have subsequently found their way into many private collections.

Her work is as her life; bold, direct and truthful with no hidden messages. These works transcend intellectuality and emotionalism, but retain great feeling, imparting the pure joy of creating and sharing with those can feel the energy...and hear the music.

Beverly Bell is a graduate of San Diego State University

with a degree in Applied Arts.

Scores of classes and workshops too numerous to mention.

She has also studied with such noted artists as Robert Landry and Carl Provder.

She has won many awards for her work, both locally and throughout the state of California.

Artist Statement

I do not do art because I can, but because I must. As a tool of awareness, I am driven to record all the sights and sounds around me. Every art is a sister to every other art; all having the same elements and discipline. I choose to depict musical themes as it allows me to use freedom of a loose expression on more than one level. My compositions are of rhythmic action and movement. The known artists are of our time; our history now. Many of the characters live in my imagination, I add water and they flow out on to paper.

Robert Henri, says every artist is a Master of that which he has now. My studio is my world. I listen to the music that speaks to me now. I face a large white sheet of paper and I daringly explore where no man has gone before.
