Bev Doolittle was born and raised in California. In 1968, she graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. She met her husband at school and the started married life with a painting trip to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks – a portent of things to come.
Doolittle’s distinctive talent began to fully blossom during a year-long journey with her husband in 1973. Traveling throughout the west, she developed her unique style and technique that merged with her love of nature, creating what would become virtually a new genre. She is often called a “camouflage artist” because her distinctive use of context, design and pattern help viewers discover meanings which seem hidden only until they become obvious. As proof of her dedication to the environment, a portion of the proceeds from sales of Doolittle prints is donated anonymously to environmental and other causes each year.
