Biography

Beverly Paul is a practicing artist who lives in Bowie, Maryland. Her paintings are influenced by the aesthetic traditions that link early African-American quilts to African textiles. These traditions include vertical strips, bold colors, large designs, improvisation, symbolic and appliqu├ęd forms, as well as religious and protective writing. Beverly often uses the pear as a symbol of the female form. Her work consists primarily of narrative collages and paintings that are meant to teach and tell stories.
