BEVERLY PATTERSON is a San Francisco based artist and graphic designer. Informed by her architecture-focused education and experience, her work reflects her fascination with perception, patterns, geometry, history and culture. Passionate in her painting, printmaking, and ceramics, her favored creative zone is exploring where structure and the unanticipated converge and finding delight in the moments when their interaction strengthens the awareness and perception of one another.

Beverly finds inspiration in patterns found in nature and in cultural expressions such as mosaics, Navajo blankets, Peruvian weaving, Kilim rugs, Sashiko and Gee’s Bend quilting and in the work of San Francisco Bay Area such as artists Richard Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebaud, Hung Liu, Ruth Asawa, and Barry McGee. When not creating something, you are likely to find her dancing with friends, making pies, visiting a museum, or attending a cultural event.
