Bev Doolittle®

“My love for nature, and man’s relationship with it, is the driving force behind all of my artwork.” Bev’s work reflects her love of horses, passion for the natural world and her affinity for the Native American’s spiritual relationship to the land. “For me painting is a growth process. By giving each of my pursuits my best effort, and by learning from my mistakes, doors have opened for me that I could never have anticipated.” One of those doors was with The Greenwich Workshop, who produced her first limited edition print, Pintos, in 1979. It sold out at the publisher within weeks. “I am not a prolific painter,” Bev explains. “My art style prevents that. Reproducing my painting in print was the perfect answer. I was able to concentrate on my most important ideas while still having my work represented in galleries around North America as well as abroad. Nearly all of Bev’s prints have been sellouts and five books of her art have been released. Her first, The Art of Bev Doolittle, is truly a phenomenon, having sold over half million copies of its hardback edition. Her subsequent books, New Magic, The Forest Has Eyes, Reading the Wild were popular with both the young and old. Her illustrated novel for young readers, The Earth is My Mother includes dozens of drawings and paintings, four of which were released in print. In 2004, after a five-year hiatus, Bev returned to the print art in the form of original, hand-pulled, stone lithographs. With some editions set at fewer than 20 pieces, these original prints are already rare. “Life is full of hard choices and the path of the artist is no different. My advice to aspiring artists is simple: paint what you know, paint what you love and always paint for yourself!” Bev, her husband Jay and their son Jayson live close to nature in the California high desert.
