Born February 10, 1947 in California, Bev attended college at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. That is where she met her husband, Jay Doolittle. Together they worked briefly as graphic artists; then they became traveling artists and drove in a motorhome around the American southwest. They painted scenes of the landscapes as they went. This is where Bev developed her love of western art. Realistic western art has conventionally been dominated by oil painting, and Doolittle was instrumental in bringing watercolours into the genre. A unique aspect of her art is what she calls “a camouflage technique” in which certain details of her art can be seen in more than one way. For example, in “The Forest Has Eyes,” the rocks and waterfalls seen up close appear as the faces of Native Americans.
