About Bev Doolittle
Bev Doolittle born February 10, 1947 in California and grew up there. In 1968. she then graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. She then met her husband, Jay, at school, and they started married life with a painting trip to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks-a portent of things to come. For the next five years, however, the Doolittle’s were engaged in graphic design, advertising art, and various television productions in the Los Angeles California area.
About the commercial advertising design business, "It paid well, but after a while, I wasn’t learning," Bev explains, "and we didn’t like living in the city. We wanted to be close to nature, and we wanted to travel." They have now accomplished both. Their frequent travels and backpacking trips have covered the western United States, Canada, Baja California, and East Africa. They currently live close to nature in California.
Bev Doolittle’s subject matter is the performance of the out-of-doors. "I love nature," she says. "I try to look beyond the obvious and create unique, meaningful paintings depicting our Western wilderness and its inhabitants. I start with a concept and attempt to convey it through strong design coupled with detailed realism. I want people to think when they look at my paintings."
