Beverly Good Sloper

Mixed Media Artist

Two Birds One Stone Studio

My mixed media paintings combine acrylics, layered paper, clay, photos and found objects.  Our Great Falls studio is filled with containers and files of odd finds that hold the promise of inspiring my next creation.  My process always begins with an emotional connection to the subject.  It has to touch my heart in some way, and then I can let the painting reveal itself organically.  The loves of my life have always been the main source of my inspiration.  Faith, family and friends are continuing themes.  I find great humor in the juxtaposition of ill-matched media.  The odd photo cropping up in an unnatural setting just makes me smile.  I hope the joy in my journey is apparent and the smile is contagious.
