Sacha Beverley is an award winning contemporary artist, qualified interior designer and property stylist from the Gold Coast. She is passionate about all things creative and soulful and loves bringing her interior design colour expertise into her paintings to create beautiful, fresh and uplifting artwork.
Sacha paints from her art studio at Currumbin and predominantly creates large scale contemporary abstract artworks that give her the greatest freedom of self-expression.
She starts the creative process with no predetermined idea of what the finished artwork will look like and just lets the painting evolve naturally by writing words, affirmations, stories and feelings onto the canvas, then overlaying the paint layer after layer, dripping ink, making marks and developing the symbolic imagery that spontaneously emerges onto the canvas. Curious by nature, Sacha enjoys experimenting with different materials, techniques and surfaces. Sacha’s paintings often take many painting sessions to finish before she can see the beauty and harmony that exists between the colours, composition and shapes.
In 2015 Sacha was awarded 2nd prize in the D’Arcy Doyle Art Awards for her abstract beach scene titled ‘Between The Flags’. She has also been awarded the Queensland College of Art industry award for outstanding creative achievement and was the recipient of a Regional Arts Development Fund Grant for her solo exhibition titled ‘Construct Your Dreams’, a collection of paintings inspired by the construction of the Gold Coast Light Rail. In 2012 Sacha opened her own art gallery/retail shop in Southport called ‘Sacha Beverley Art & Design’ which traded for 3 years and showcased her original artwork, framed prints, handmade jewellery and decorative homewares.
Sacha also enjoys sharing her artistic knowledge through teaching art classes and creative workshops. She loves inspiring others to unleash their creative spirit, increase their self-confidence and find joy through artistic exploration.
Sacha holds a Diploma of Interior Design Technology, a certificate in Digital Design for Furniture and Fashion Fabrics and a Certificate IV in Assessment & Workplace Training.
Sacha has always worked in areas of creativity such as Interior Design, Landscape Design, Product Design and Photography and also tutored Graphic Illustration and Interior Design at the Gold Coast Institute of Tafe College.
