About Bev Boren

Bev Boren was born and raised in Texas and now resides in Trophy Club, Texas with her husband Ben.  She is a signature member of the Outdoor Painters Society and the Southwestern Watercolor Society.  She is also a member of the Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, and American Watercolor Society.


Her work is primarily the result of her need to paint.  Inspiration can come at any time and in any place.  She is not confined to one subject area.  She loves  to paint a variety of subject matter as well as working in various mediums.  Bev's paintings are created with things that capture her eye whether it's a still life, landscape, or capturing a person's personality.  Painting is her way of connecting with the world and the people around her and sharing those experiences along the way.


In her words "Trying to describe or explain my efforts at painting or drawing seems like a futile effort.  After all, I want my work to express itself without the necessity of words.  My best hope is that my work will stand simply on it's own, and find a connection with viewers where words fail".
