Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festival on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.

During the weekend some 100+ cottages in the village become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.

Beverley Ann Hicks

< Back to Artists

Beverley was born in North Yorkshire in 1967. She studied at The University of Newcastle upon Tyne, where in 1989 she was awarded a B.A.Hons in Fine Art and in 1991 a M.A. in Painting/Sculpture. In her paintings her intention is to recreate a specific atmosphere, predominantly through the careful juxtaposition of tactile paint application, colour and composition. She juggles with these elements, adding layer upon layer, scraping and rubbing away sections to create a coherence and balance. She is only happy with what she has produced when, as Howard Hodgkin so succinctly puts it: “You keep on balancing and balancing and balancing until the picture wins”
