Biography


Beverly Bunker is a Canadian artist living in the province of Alberta, in a small city named St. Albert. She has been professionally engaged in an art capacity since 1983 when she started a personal business doing graphic art commissions and special awards for the Provincial Government, the City of Edmonton, corporations, private companies, Universities, and ultimately was requested for two commissions for Queen Elizabeth II.

Bev is choosing to paint flowers that have grown in her own garden or from nearby botanical Gardens, as well as choosing selections of floral arrangements creating paintings of bouquets, and eventually wreaths and hanging valances. Bev’s work in florals has recently been described as “luminous, fresh and alive, and done with a virtuosity not often seen except in mastery of her medium and understanding of her subjects.”

In the past Bev produced many high-quality landscape paintings of her local area, often surrounded by many canola fields. These paintings were often immediately sold. She also loves to work in painting mountain streams [...]
