Member Profile of the Month
After years of painting, Beasley has covered a lot of ground producing work that is either abstract, symbolic, realistic or somewhere in between. Her subject matter comes to a great extent from ideas relating to nature, language and social or human issues or anything at all that happens to catch her interest. Memories of her native Finland, years spent in England and life in Canada influence all of her paintings but to her the most precious is imagination for the freedom to 'mindtravel', break limits and to make discoveries.
Self-taught, Beasley has taken several classes over the years in a variety of media and subject matter from life drawing to pottery. Oil painting has been her chosen media, but to break the routine she also loves to work with mixed media and collage.
She has won several awards over the years.
Beasley is currently a member of Oshawa Art Association Inc., PRAC, Robert McLaughlin Gallery and Whitby Station Gallery.
