About Beverley Wightman
Beverley Wightman has spent most of her life as a music teacher, working in schools in Shropshire and the West Midlands. She only began painting relatively recently; indeed it was the first lockdown due to Coronavirus that really saw the biggest output of paintings. During sunny walks around her home town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire, she found very paintable subjects, and so began her development as a landscape artist, painting local views and scenes. High Town and Low Town, the River Severn and the Severn Valley Railway were all sources of inspiration. After a local news article and a feature on Shropshire radio, her work sparked some interest, and she began selling paintings and art cards featuring her deisgns. As a local to Bridgnorth, Beverley is passionate about sharing the beauty of her home town, which lies on the River Severn south of Shrewsbury in Shropshire, in the UK. There are still many scenes she is planning to paint from the local area. Beverley paints in oils on canvas and board.
Beverley also has an affinity with the Orkney Isles. There are so many paintable scenes which she enjoys painting - the light so far north is very special! Hence the reason for a whole section devoted to paintings of Orkney. Having visited the area, she was enchanted by the place, but being such a distance away, she now has to rely on photos for inspiration, with many taken by her friend, Judy, who lives there.
There is a charity close to Beverley's heart: the A-T Society, which works tirelessly for people with Ataxia Telangiectasia, a life-limiting disease affecting children and young people. A good friend in Bridgnorth has two children who suffer with this debilitating disease. 10% of all sales goes direct to this charity.
