Chalk Circle Arts

This is one of Beverly's great paintings on the Westgate Bridge

If you live in Melbourne and have been to Southgate, I am sure you've seen the fantastic and creative pavement drawings by Bev Issac and her associates.

Beverly Isaac has been a full-time practising artist for 14 years. She achieved her degree in Fine Art (Sculpture) at Victoria College in 1986 and a diploma of Education at University of Melbourne 1991. Although an accomplished painter and sculptor Bev is best known to Melbournians as one of the city's most prolific and original pavement artists. In 1992 she co-founded the special event visual art group "Chalk Circle" to tour Canada, Britain and Europe.The group is still working at the highest level on the International Festival circuit and Beverly's work regularly achieves front-page coverage.

I had been taking photos of Bev's arts, observing and admiring her ability to draw for a long time as I walked past her when she painted for the last few years already. I bought one of her drawings (which she did with her daughter, who is also a great artist) recently. Since then, I have been enjoying chatting with Bev as I walked past Southgate, which is only a few minutes from where I live. I am looking forward to getting to know her more.
