Welcome to the Art Prescription! Here you will find:

-A dose of art! My hope is to provide a dose of art for anyone who needs it. Your dose can be a quick fix or a meandering visit. I welcome comments and ideas and please come back soon.

-My newest art available for art licensing and publishing. I work in watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media and have hundreds of pieces. I’m also a Certified Botanical Illustrator. Contact me for tear sheets or image requests bev@beverlydyer.com

For art publishing I am represented by AD Lines http://ad-lines.com/index.cfm

I am a nurse and an artist and part of my quest in life is to intertwine these passions. Art is healing. It boost the immune system, eases pain and depression by increasing good brain chemicals, and can be a way to release emotions.

Artist Statement

“We all cross through life from birth to death. During my years as a nurse, I’ve experienced many profound and intimate human encounters and witnessed the most tragic and joyful of human circumstances. This has had beautifully positive as well as distressing effects on me as a person. My goal as a nurse and artist is to maintain health and balance in order to be fully present on this journey of life.

Artistic expression through painting and poetry is inspiring and health promoting for me. I take my experiences and translate them into creative activity in search of meaning and understanding. Or sometimes I travel on a journey with my imagination and escape into fantasy by painting away the hours for the pure joy of it. For me, creativity is important to a well-adjusted life.”

Beverly lives in beautiful Chapel Hill, North Carolina with her adorable husband Sam Dyer and their three cats Maya, Mocha, and Matisse.

My fine art stationery and products can be found in many North Carolina stores. Contact me for a complete list.

    I love your site, poems and art and take inspiration from it daily. I’ve been painting on my art quilts by using whatever paint or fabric I have available. I learn as I go trying ideas from Quilting Arts magazine. I was wondering what was the watercolor fabric you talked about and where do you get it?

    Thanks

    • Hi Carol,
      Glad you are following! It’s been fun for me to set a goal of writing a haiku a day and pair them with art.

      The watercolor fabric is actually my art printed on 100% cotton. There is a site called spoonflower that prints. I’m extremely happy with the quality of the colors and am thinking of selling fabric on my etsy shop. I have been wondering if there was a market for crafters and quilters for watercolor fabric.

      I love quilts! I have about 6 that my grandparents hand-made. Truly art!

      Cheers,
      Beverly

  2. Hi Beverly,
    So wish I could get inspiration by painting in your little ‘art house’. What a tranquil and zen place. I miss your smiling face and lovely aura.
