Beverley has a responsive and experiential approach to art which, together with her abstract expressionism, creates a collection of individually unique works. Her paintings are related as a whole, not only by their acrylic medium, but by a layered and highly developed sense of colour, form and line - the interwoven relationships of which have been mastered during her now forty years of brushwork.

In 2017, I received two "Highly Commended" awards and a "People's Choice" award in exhibitions at the Royal Queensland Art Society, and judge, Richard Blundell, made the following comments on one of these works titled 'September': "Spontaneous and painterly approach to landscape with the sense of immediacy and urgent mark making... this work carries the power of the artist 'breaking open' the structure and significant forms of the landscape. I am moved by the 'raw' mark making."
In 2013, I received the Christian Thomsen Award for Painting (Judge: Julie Ewington, QAGOMA) at the Rio Tinto Alcan Martin Hanson Memorial Art Awards, Gladstone Regional Gallery.

The 2017 Autumn Edition of ART EDIT, p119, contained a Gallery Panel review of one of my paintings "Catching the Moon". Gallerists who have commented are: Ralph Hobbs, Director at Nanda/Hobbs Contemporary; Peter Aitken, Director at Wentworth Galleries; and Susan Gibson, Gallery Owner at Cambridge Studio Gallery.
Catching the Moon, Acrylic on canvas, 98x98cm (SOLD)
"Tainton's Catching the Moon, is a painting with many romantic connotations. It has a lightness that captures the landscape in moonlight with a dynamic yet haunting sense of midnight stillness. The layering of tone and colour coupled with a sensitivity of line is very effective. The little dots of orange and the boat-like form float in the foreground giving a strength of composition to the painting without adding weight that would affect the overall light feel of the painting. It is a great size to fill its own wall space or work in with similar sized pieces in a collection."
Ralph Hobbs, Director at Nanda\Hobbs Contemporary
Professor Mostyn Bramley-More, Professor of Fine Art at Griffith University, has recognised my work with a prize in the May 2016 Abstract Exhibition organised by the Royal Queensland Art Society.

Beverley regularly travels in eastern Australia and particularly loves the Darling Downs and Granite Belt in southern Queensland and the Hunter Valley region in New South Wales. It's the changing seasons and palette of colours that draws her and inspires the beauty and joy in her art.
