Beverly Forester Artist Bio
The beauty of Nature…The joy of a Kaleidoscope
"I must have been 5 years old when I held my first kaleidoscope. I was fascinated…all those colors turning in the light! It’s never changed for me. The movement and colors of a kaleidoscope always bring me joy. I began studying stained glass art for the sole purpose of creating kaleidoscopes.
Another great love in my life is nature: birds and butterflies, flowers and gardens. As the years passed I began experimenting with adding these to my kaleidoscopes. It is the most amazing thing to see the many beautiful shapes and colors of flowers, leaves, and butterfly wings as they change patterns through the mirrors.
My studio is in our home, a bit out in the country, where we have cows for neighbors. My happy place is in our gardens where we grow flowers used in my kaleidoscopes. I am married to my beloved Bill who helps me in the business." Beverly Forester
