Lily Beard

ARTIST BIO

Lily Beard was raised in the Gulf Coast region of Texas where she started drawing at an early age. 

Her first venture into the art profession was in her third-grade classroom where she found a patronage in the 9-year-old male classmates who appreciated her ability to draw well-endowed ladies.  While 25 cents per drawing augmented her monthly allowance, it wasn’t to be a long career for the quiet young artist.

In 2014, after retiring from a successful commercial art and design career, Lily Beard finally returned to her first love of painting people and animals, specifically portraits in oils and in soft pastels.  By this time, she had learned that the deeper joy in creating came from finding and expressing the truth in a face or a simple expression of beauty or humor in her surroundings.  

The image you see here (upper left) is a sample of a commissioned portrait done in soft pastels, that was completed in 2019.  You may contact the artist about having a custom painting done of your loved ones (human or pet) via email:  LilyBeardArt@gmail.com

Print reproductions are not sold on this website as Lily Beard prefers to sell only originals at this time.  All original art is archival and signed by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity.  Please respect Artist Copyright laws.
