Hi.  It’s so nice to meet you.  I’m Tori Beveridge.  I live, with my husband and our dogs, cats and chickens, in the middle of nowhere, Illinois, surrounded by horse pastures, corn fields and forest.  We have between us, two daughters and a son, who are all grown and living in cities far from us.

As a girl I loved paper dolls and would draw my own dolls and design clothes for them, but I never considered myself an artist. My creative expression was always through writing, story telling and dance, and I didn’t begin to dabble in art until after my son was born.

I am self taught, and being self taught has given me the freedom to experiment and play with art, enabling me to find my own unique style.  The magic and bliss of ordinary days is my motivation.  I believe in the power of positivity and seek to remember the good in a world where everyone is focused on the negative.

I am now a mixed media artist, working both digitally and traditionally, with a focus on magical realism and folk art.  Through my art, I hope people will experience inspiration, emotion, and the bliss of painting.  If I want to create something realistic, I pick up my camera.

Art is an experience.  Creating art is an experience.  Let’s experience it together.
