Artist Jodie Bews - Everlongart

Jodie is a self taught artist from Alford in Aberdeenshire. Jodie works predominantly in watercolour with the use of some inks in her paintings.  Jodie mainly paints the flora and fauna that Mother Nature presents in her local surroundings, in a surreal realistic style.

Jodie owns Everlongart Studio & Gift Shop on Alford's Main Street, selling works on behalf of other super talented, designers, crafters, artists and makers from the Aberdeen and shire area.

Most of Jodies work can be seen in person at the shop.

Jodie mainly paints animals, insects, flowers and some portraits in a surreal/realistic style, and takes most of her inspiration from the local surroundings, Mother Nature, beautiful gardens, walking with her dogs Brindi and George, peaceful sacred sites, such as local stone circles and castle ruins.  

Jodie sees beauty in everything and takes so much inspiration from every day life too.
