About Beverley Skurulis
Beverley’s passion has always been art. Her first tool a piece of charcoal, her first canvas the footpath of her childhood home in Nedlands, Perth, Western Australia.
A self taught artist, Beverley has loved every minute of her pastime which is forever heading in new directions. Finding so much inspiration in the Pilbara, the Kimberley and now the lovely island of Tasmania. "I find all of Australia inspirational" states Beverley who is a seventh generation Australian. Her ancestors pioneered in South Australia, NSW, Tasmania, and 130 years ago Coolgardie, in Western Australia.
"I feel privileged that I have the ability to show to you my love of this great country through my art" said Beverley. Her life memories are shown in her art and her home, memories that should be familiar with a lot of Australians. Beverley has been painting professionally for about 30 years. Selling mostly to the corporate sector and through galleries in the Kimberley, the Pilbara and Perth Western Australia..
For 20 years Beverley preferred to work in watercolour, recently painting with oil paints and oil sticks on Belgium Linen.
She has had numerous solo and joint exhibitions and her work is represented locally and overseas. Beverley now owns and works from the Beverley Skurulis Gallery, 41 Gilbert Street, Latrobe, Tasmania.
