Juror: Beverly Boren

Bev Boren is a Texas born & raised artist. Painting is her way of connecting with the world and the people around her. In her words “Trying to describe or explain my efforts at painting or drawing seems like a futile effort. After all, I want my work to express itself without the necessity of words. My best hope is that my work will stand simply on its own and find a connection with viewers where words fail”. http://bevboren.com/
