Bev  Rodin
About the Artists:
Catherine Beverly Rodin is an internationally collected Canadian artist known for her distinctive paintings of light and atmosphere on canvas and in watercolour. Bev exhibits her works in galleries across Canada and her paintings can be found in public, corporate and private collections in North America, Australia, Japan, Mexico, France, Luxembourg, Barbados, Bermuda, Shanghai and the UK.

Bev began her art career in Port Cartier, Quebec. Her subject matter is inspired by living in many parts of Canada and traveling overseas, as well as gardening, hiking, canoeing and observing the interiors of her home and studio. "As a painter, I am interested in unusual lighting effects, particularly backlighting and dappled light, and I work with rich, elegant colour groupings and thin coloured glazes in an attempt to achieve the effect I am seeking."

Bev graduated with an M.A. in visual communication and a PhD from OISE at the University of Toronto. Bev has worked with international artists at the Atelier du Seguret in Provence and was awarded an artist residency at the Leighton Studios at the Banff Centre.

Bev is a member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolor and the Ontario Society of Artists. She was awarded the prestigious International Artist Landscape Award by the Banff Centre in 2005.
