I love teaching art and enriching people’s lives, I've been doing for over fifteen years. There is something magical about the creative arts that can touch and lift the human spirit, bringing a new sense of discovery and curiosity.
I believe anyone can learn to paint and draw, you just need a good teacher to show you the ropes and an sprinkle of enthusiasm; no-matter your ability, age or past artistic catastrophes please feel free to reach out to me and take a chance, what have you got to lose?
Kimberley Bevan’s work is known for its intense use of colour and detail along with representations of dynamic movement. Her art works navigate between two main themes: Firstly human perception of time and space, “this is a very complex theme whereby I use a variety of experimental approaches from layering images to dripping oil paint down the canvas and mixing foreign bodies into pigments”. Her aim is to capture movement, to strike a balance between the normal visual world and her own individual subconscious world influenced by emotion, memory and expectation. The secondary theme of her work combines contemporary physics theories with historical plant and insect symbolism, she fabricates highly detailed inter locking water colour illustrations inspired by artists such as William Morris.
After graduating from the University of Hertfordshire in 2004 with a BA (Hons) in Applied Media Arts, Kimberley Bevan was awarded a five year fellowship with Digswell Arts Trust. During which time she exhibited in London and Europe while working with many other fellow artists to construct exhibitions and educational programmes for large and small institutions. After completion of her fellowship she was awarded a board trustee position where she continued to work in support of local arts projects in collaboration of various authorities. In 2014 she had numerous artworks exhibited in America, Wales and England.
