Beverley Fitzwilliam Harries, or “Flossy” as she is referred to by friends and family, was born in Trinidad in 1956. She was “totally” consumed by art from a young age, something that made studying Fine Art in Canada with a Painting Major, a natural choice. After completing her studies, she returned to Trinidad where she worked as a teacher for almost 20 years. During this time she painted sporadically, mostly on commissions and with the odd burst of energy. However, in 1997, Beverley resigned from her teaching post and migrated to Jamaica with her family where they lived for a few years before relocating to St. Lucia in 2000.
Living in St. Lucia gave her the blank canvas to start again. Since her move she attended a number of workshops in neighbouring Barbados before returning to Trinidad where she currently lives and works.
Her preferred medium is acrylic on canvas and she enjoys spending her time depicting the florid tropical surroundings of her homeland with her signature Fauve use of colour.
