Beverly Richmond Fine Art
Beverly Richmond was born in the small northeast Texas town of Clarksville. She graduated from high school in Mineola, Texas and attended the University of North Texas where she majored in Medical Technology. She went on to graduate from the St. Paul School of Medical Technology and receive her medical technologist registration from the National Association of Clinical Pathologists.
Beverly grew up with a left-handed older sister who was very artistic. Because of this she came to believe you had to be born with the ability to draw or paint and that usually only left-handed people were given that gift. However, after moving to a new city, she accepted a neighbor’s invitation to attend a gathering of artists. Even though she knew she had no artistic talent (couldn’t even draw a stick figure), she decided it would be a welcome diversion and a chance to meet new friends. At that meeting, someone convinced her they could teach her to paint, and so she began her journey into the wonderful world of painting.
There were many detours along the way, but as her children grew up and left the nest her desire to pursue becoming an artist grew also. She began to seek out teachers who could point out the right path to take. Her search led her to attend and graduate from the Liliedahl School of Classical Oil Painting. Along the way, she discovered the joy of teaching others to paint so she decided to pursue further study and become a Liliedahl Certified Fine Art Instructor.
Maybe the fact that there is always something new to learn around the next bend in the artistic path is what spurs the people who follow it to continue to study. Beverly continues her travels on that path by attending workshops, utilizing DVDs, books and electronic media. Some of the instructors she has studied with include: Dalhart Windberg, Sherry McGraw, Joshua Fallik, Xiang Zhang, Elizabeth Robbins, Joe Anna Arnett, Robert Johnson, and Ken Backhaus.
Beverly is a member of Oil Painters of America, The Portrait Society, Grapevine Art Project, and Trinity Art Guild. She is represented by Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, TX.
She and her husband reside in North Richland Hills where they are active in their church and enjoy spending time with their family and friends.

Antiques & Paintings by Betty
Betty is a native Texan that enjoys painting landscapes and seascapes in oil. Over the years, she has learned and honed her skills from various Texas professional artists. Her love of nature greatly inspires to paint landscapes and seascapes using a brush or palette knife. Her passion for painting started as a child by her grandmother teaching her to physically stop and smell the roses. Then later on in years her grade school art teacher encouraged her to paint her passion... which is nature. It took 14 years to get serious about painting and once it started she wondered why did it take so long.
