Westbrook artist, Beverly A. Schirmeier sees the color and light used by the Lyme Impressionists as her inspiration for her oil paintings and pastels. What intrigues her is capturing the luminosity of light and its effect on the atmosphere. She loves painting en plein air and capturing the ever changing landscapes and  she paints still life set ups in the winter

Beverly’s artwork has been exhibited in galleries, public buildings and in collaboration with other artists and in single artist shows. Her work resides in numerous collections and can be seen in regional art club shows and various other artistic venues along the shoreline. She holds Elected Artist memberships in the Lyme Art Association, Guilford Art League, Essex Art Association, Academic Artists, Madison and the Clinton Art Societies. She is an Signature Artist in the Connecticut Pastel Society and the former president of the Madison Art Society, a position she held for 12 years, and she is currently on the Lyme Art Association Executive Board of Directors.
