Bevie lived for many years in Minnesota and currently lives in Washington State. With more than 20 years facilitating experiences with people of all ages, she has worked as a youth worker, wilderness therapy instructor, art and outdoor educator, cross-cultural worker, and most recently as an independent artist and art therapist. Her passion and joy is to help people heal and come to life through creativity and experiences in the natural world through mentoring, teaching, guiding and inspiring. She enjoys exploring her surroundings both locally and internationally through her artistic lens of mixed media art combining painting, drawing and photography; and through outdoor pursuits such as rock-climbing, canoeing, kayaking and backpacking. She has recently been part of art shows such as "The Art of Climbing" and "Caring For What We Care For," inspired by many nights spent in wild spaces and days scaling rock walls.
