Beverly Carlson Bradshaw
Beverly Carlson-Bradshaw grew up on a farm in Montana and has always loved animals and landscapes. Her surroundings gave her inspiration when she started drawing at a young age. Beverly moved to oil painting when she was in H.S., taking night classes at Eastern University in Billings while also working.
She moved to Seattle at age 26 and lived there for 35 years working as an Interior Designer. For the last 20 years she has been sporadically taking night classes at the University of WA, when time allowed. Beverly took workshops with Ned Mueller and Clark Elster. The last 10 years her painting has taken a backseat as her design business flourished.
Beverly and her husband decided to move to Carefree, AZ in February 2018. Beverly since decided to retire from Interior Design and pursue her true love of pastel painting. She considers the surrounding desert and animals as her new inspiration. Beverly has been taking workshops at Scottsdale Artists School and with the Arizona Pastel Artists Association and Sonoran Arts League.
