ABOUT THE ARTIST
Beverly Bruntz is a contemporary painter, working in Kentucky. After graduating with a
Masters of Art from California State University, Fullerton, Beverly worked for several years in
commercial art. Feeling the need to pick up the paint brush again, she began exploring the fine
art scene in southern California. She started taking her paints outdoors and was hooked on
painting directly from life. She developed her painting skills while working a full time job in
graphic design. In 2009 Beverly relocated from Yorba Linda, CA to the bluegrass region in her
home state of Kentucky and fell in love again with the beauty of the area.
Her approach is characterized by a personal connection to nature. Being in awe of the one who
created it all. She explores her work by combing realism with elements of fancy and
abstraction. Sometimes the focus is the landscape and at other times she’s drawn to the
creatures in the landscape. Created through delicate drawings and tactile textures. Her work is
at once nostalgic and current. Somewhere between the fantasies of youth and the scientist
documenting native species.
Beverly’s work is in many private and corporate collections nationwide including the 21c
