Beverly Danks
29 x 36 inches
mixed media & watercolor

Beverly Danks, a longtime Genesee County resident and artist, passed away on July 21, 2015, but left a legacy of impressionistic images developed from abstract bases using oil, watercolor, hand made papers, and ink.

Beverly left a successful career in window display for Smith Bridgman's to pursue her love of painting. She studied with local artists such as Jim Anthony, took many workshops and enjoyed teaching oil painting for over 20 years. She loved to experiment with colors and textures and to "…teach people to see things in a new way."
