Artist who paints emotion and believes we should share our feelings with your loved ones.

The death of Bev's father has motivated her to create paintings for clients that allow them to share their feelings with their loved ones before it is too late. Mindfulness is about being present and in this moment. There truly is no time like the present to take action. As Eckert Tolle says, there is no present, there is only now.

 "...talking about and describing a place that is of such significance to our family.  The painting was a gift for my father and he was thrilled with it ... touched by such a personal gift and grateful for the many wonderful memories it evokes whenever he looks at it.  ...JC’

 "I wanted to give my son a painting for his 50th birthday that represented a special time that we shared in Newfoundland.  I found a picture that depicted perfectly an ocean scene with rugged cliffs and it was winter time.  Bev captured the ruggedness of the cliffs; the angry ocean; the snow.. My son loves it. "         JWR

Why Mindfulness and Art?

I'm so glad you stopped by. I'm happily painting in wine country in beautiful Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. I hope you enjoy shopping my original artwork. I am an experience beginner when it comes to mindfulness practice and I write about that journey and share tips, advice from experts and free guides and sessions in my blog posts. People often ask what exactly is mindfulness, is there a mindfulness technique? How do you practice mindfulness? I was asking the same questions and started finding answers.

WHAT MOTIVATES ME TO BLOG and to PAINT?

I try and practice mindfulness everyday. As the benefits of the mindful exercises become clearer with each passing day I’m finding myself increasingly drawn to connect my artwork with my mindfulness activities.

I paint emotion and so for me it is a natural fit to create artwork that expresses elements elaborated by John Kabat Zinn and others.

My background includes being a Training Manager and Designer which prompted me to start blogging about Mindfulness. As much as I admire some works, I find them hard slogging and so I enjoy the challenge of making the material more accessible.

As well, as an experienced beginner when it comes to mindfulness practice, I hope that by sharing my journey it will help others looking to enrich their life. I will also be sharing the rich expertise that is out there.

Mindfulness and Family are my two principal areas of focus. One area of my painting that is very dear to me is the Paintimento. My father died before I let him know how important he had been to me, how much influence he had had on my life and how much I loved him. I continue to regret that.

So, while I may have missed one opportunity to honour and celebrate a loved one, I could make certain not to miss opportunities with my remaining family members. I create unique artwork for each family member. The image may be of a place that has special meaning for us, or it may be an image which triggers how I feel.  I call each of these treasures a paintimento.  

Through my commission work, I enjoy enabling clients to experience this same sense of deep connection and joy. It is an emotional experience for both the giver and the recipient. It truly is a beautiful legacy.
