Today we’d like to introduce you to Beverly Dameron.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
Color me with all the colors! Painting, sketching… creating with whatever I had on hand was my normal. Then I took an intense voice acting workshop (this was for television and broadcasting work at the time). The instructor created such a focused, spontaneous & uninhibited atmosphere to fully engage the right brain!
When the workshop ended, I had learned a great deal about the voice acting but I knew with certainty that I should be painting! So much so that I went home that night and painted a scene on the china cabinet in my dining room with leftover cans of house paint (the only paint I had at the time) from my garage. Not long after, I sold my painted china cabinet! Today the journey continues with abstract as well as representational paintings, exhibits, classes and art organizations. I am a work in progress!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Finding the time to paint was a challenge… making it a priority was important I was at a loss finding classes to develop my art but getting involved with local art organizations introduced me to other artists as well as classes. The obstacles really do not matter because I am going to paint, continue to learn & be creative regardless!
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I capture memories with paint. It’s exciting to make a special place or event or activity or whatever memory comes to life for a client. A collaborative process that creates a personal masterpiece.
Before we let you go, we’ve got to ask if you have any advice for those who are just starting out?
Give priority to your creative time. Staying involved with art organizations and like-minded artists is motivating and helpful with what is going on in the art world. Donate some of your work to charities… it’s a win-win… for a worthy cause(s) and for exposure. Social media is a great way to get your work seen as well. Keep creating… it’s good for you and other people too!
