Beverly Lazor lives in Southern California. At a very early age she was exposed to the landscape with regular Sunday family drives up and down the beautiful California coast. This influenced her love for our wonderful diverse countryside, there is nothing like experiencing the lighting, atmosphere and mood of an environment and then trying to capture it on a canvas. Beverly has always been inspired by the impressionist painters and their wonderful use of color, texture and brush strokes. Plein air painting has become a passion. You just can’t capture the same excitement and experience in the studio as being there with nature. The use of shadows and color play an important part in inspiring her compositions. She favors a more loose painterly approach to her work, enjoying the more subtle nuances that brush strokes can achieve in a painting.
After graduating with distinction from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, she worked as a freelance illustrator /product designer for over 40 years, working in the entertainment industry, illustrating children’s books, puzzles, clothing, jewelry and toys, working with clients like Disney, Amblin, MCA, Bradford Exchange, and The Getty Museum.
She currently is the BFA Online Fine Art Coordinator at the Academy of Art University, in SF, as well as writes and instructs fine art online classes. She is the Malibu / Ventura County Chapter Chair of the California Art Club, Signature member of the California Plein Air Painters and exhibits in numerous shows.
