"Boys of Summer" — Watercolor/Gouache © Beatrice Bork
“I’m not compelled to paint every animal I see, at least not right away. The time to dive into the creative process, is when it becomes personal. Each painting is imbued beyond subject, with reflection of events, struggles, or humorous encounters.
I enjoy immersing myself in thought and planning that is required with watercolor, but also relish in its poetic qualities. My curiosity is satiated through careful portrayal, which in turn reflects the love and respect I have for my subjects. The malleable qualities of this medium, allow me to focus on elements that are important to the painting. As a professional artist, I am pleased that my dedication, to the work I so enjoy, has amassed numerous accolades.
Over the last 25 years, my paintings have been exhibited in various galleries, museums, and publications. I’m honored to be recognized by the prestigious Society of Animal Artists with signature status. It is indeed a privilege to know that my paintings have been acquired by collectors throughout the US and abroad.”
