Beverly Paterson

I was born in Halifax and educated at Dalhousie University (BAHon, BSc) then later University of Calgary (MSc). My work history includes ocean studies (1976 -1983) then investment and portfolio management and a directorship (1984 until 2015 retirement).

My art education was at first self taught, then I enjoyed studies in sculpture technique, anatomy, and gesture with: Linda Lindsay (Victoria, BC), Scott Eaton (UK), Simon Kogan (Olympia, WA), Brian Booth Craig (Rome), David Simon (Rome), Stephen Perkins (Oakland, CA) and Alicia Ponzio (Rome). This is a life long learning pursuit and I am grateful for the many experiences with my teachers.
