Fall Forrest -  Encaustic
Welcome to our newest member, Beth David.  She is a 30 year resident of BC, originally hailing from Ontario where she learned to love the outdoors.  The mountains, trees, rocks and rivers bring her great joy and so she paints!

Beth recently took part in "Riverview:  Our Iconic Landscape" which was displayed at the Pendulum Gallery in Vancouver; she was one of twenty-seven artists who painted images of the beautiful landscape, trees and buildings that are found at the Riverview Hospital lands.



Rain, Rain, go away - Acrylic

Over the past years she has been commissioned to paint pets and special pieces. Her works hang in BC, Alberta and the USA with several awards received in Alberta.

She is currently a member of Art Focus Artists Association, and the Port Moody Artists Association.

Beth says that "every piece brings me not only great pleasure, but a new learning experience, and I am looking forward to sharing my art with the visitors to the Blackberry Gift Shop".  Please drop in and check out her beautiful encaustic and acrylic pieces.
