About the Artist:
A native Nebraskan, Beverly Todd grew up exploring the beauty of the rural landscape, which continues to inspire her work today. Through large-scale abstract painting, Todd interprets nature, connects with ideas and explores emotion. Her painting process is physical, using hardware-store brushes, broken sticks, rags and her hands to move paint, add layers, pull back layers, drip, scrape, wipe and pull paint across a surface.
Todd’s work can be found in private and corporate collections across the United States, including an installation at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She has shown at the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art, Kansas City Artist Coalition and Bemis Center for Contemporary Art. Todd also leads TeamPaint, an arts-based leadership development program that uses art as the tool to teach skills that build successful business and community teams. She has worked with Fortune 500 companies as well as nonprofits across the U.S.
