About Bev

BEV Paris 3.jpg

From her home studio overlooking Elk Meadow in Evergreen Colorado, Bev Endsley creates fine art oil paintings and sketches inspired by world travels and her lifelong affection for all animals, both wild and domestic.

The heavy apron she wears while painting is splattered with paint from countless works of art; deep blacks from penguins in the Antarctic, rusty browns from red foxes, soft yellows from Labrador retrievers, delicate blues that highlighted cool wet noses, delicate greens from gardens where bunnies romp and play, and the many hues of grays, whites, and pinks from skies and backgrounds.


Although she studied under famous masters such as Quang Ho, David Leffel, Mark Nelson, Kevin Weckbach, and Sherri Mcgraw, her style of impressionism is uniquely her own in her oil paintings, watercolors, and sketches.

“I begin each painting with a simplification of shapes into light and shadow. The light leads the viewer into and around the piece while the shadows invite them to add their own thoughts and feelings. This dialogue with the viewer is also encouraged by my impressionistic style that lends a mystique and sense of immediacy—what was that pup doing when I caught a glimpse of him?

“My love of animals and my desire to create art that resonates with the viewer, is the driving force in my work. My goal is to capture that special glint in my subject’s eyes, the texture of their coat, the softness of their nose; all parts of celebrating each animal’s spirit. If an animal has ever touched your heart, you know that each one, every dog, cat, horse, or rabbit has its own unique personality.”
