Beverley Woollett

Painter- born in what was then a remote rural part of Northern Victoria. Art was not permitted as a career she chose Occupational Therapy, leaving the family property to study OT. in Melbourne. There she made time to attend evening classes at the National Gallery Art School, studying life drawing under Murray Griffin. After marriage she moved to Sydney and was a part time painter for many years. She first painted in oils but was introduced to the magic of watercolour when attending classes given by Fred Bates at the Royal Art Society. Beverley has won over 40 awards in various exhibitions and has exhibited regularly with Lavender Bay gallery, Trinity Delmar gallery, Taylor gallery, Manly gallery at the S.H. Irvine gallery with the watercolour institute  and at Gosford Regional gallery. Beverley likes to abstract images from visual clues, people, places, objects, whatever, found wherever. She likes to dissect divide and layer images. Colour and shape may dictate starting point as can washed out watercolour paintings. This layering technique is subtle and rewards close examination.
