About the Artist

Canadian artist Beverley Rosenberg, born in 1965 in Toronto, studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Drawing and Painting in 1999.

Beverley’s chosen medium of expression is acrylics, inks and pastels, which she applies to canvas, paper and wood.  Beverley’s work has appeared in group exhibitions, such as the Yumart Gallery, Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, AWOL Gallery, The Embassy and Art Crawl, where her work has gained an enthusiastic following. From the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition in 2013, Beverley received the Telford Fenton Memorial Award and currently exhibits her work at the Norman Felix Gallery and Yumart Gallery.

The beginning of my art career started in my late twenties. By enrolling in private art classes, I discovered that I had a true love and passion for making art. I always thought that to be a painter you had to paint realistically, but in my learning process, I discovered otherwise.

 

My paintings have a childlike appearance, however their context is multi-layered and complex with subject matter pertaining to family life, self discovery, body image and social interactions. While simple on the surface, they contain vibrant, sometimes intense emotional undertones, creating a visceral experience for the viewer. Through the process of taking my sketchbook wherever I go, whether to a party, music show, or the hospital, my work is a direct response to the environment and the information I find there. Raw and uncontrived, the end result of my process is an image that is highly authentic, “grabbing” the viewer. I am most interested in people, what makes them tick, and the everyday experiences of life.
