oil paintings by  







Beverly Ford Evans

2256 Hillsboro Rd - Franklin, TN 37069





Beverly is a native of Nashville, Tennessee. As a child she was drawn to the beauty that surrounded her. Encouraged by her parents, she began drawing and painting. As and adult Beverly has become a prolific artist. She has studied with accomplished artist Roger Dale Brown, OPA, Dawn Whitelaw, Paula Frizbe and Jeremy Lipking.

What inspired Beverly to return to her love of painting, after a carrier in interior design, was the beauty of her home state. Tennessee is abundant in natural beauty and history. Beverly captures its essence and shares it through her paintings. She also loves to pack her paints and travel to other parts of our beautiful country, where she is inspired by the diversity and beauty at every turn in the road.

Beverly assists her husband, Roger Dale Brown, teaching plein air and studio workshops across the country. Visit www.rogerdalebrown.com    for their workshop schedule.

In recent years, Beverly has combined her love of the outdoors and animals into her art, and has become known for her sporting art.
