The show will be open daily from 10.00am – 5.00pm, except on Sundays when it can be viewed following the Eucharist. Beverley will be at All Saints throughout the exhibition to answer questions and work on her next show.

bbBeverley is an iconographer, illustrator and artist, who trained at Bath Academy of Art. During this time, she undertook commissions, mainly portraits, and painted her first liturgical artwork.

She is a member of the Association of Illustrators and is familiar with making illustrations for church publications of different denominations, and icons for private devotional, and liturgical purposes, as well as portraiture and other artwork, and works to commissions.

Beverley gives talks about the Stations of the Cross and/or conducts liturgies using them as aids to worship. She has produced a booklet of her Stations of the Cross images combined with Bible readings, prayers, meditations and other information.

Beverley has spent a good many years researching medieval artwork, eleven of these years exclusively in manuscripts, and often works by illuminating on vellum.
