BEV WALKER

 

Artist Bev Walker was born in Rangeley, Maine and moved to Michigan with her husband Jack where she received her BS in Design from the University of Michigan in 1974. She then worked as a designer for the University of Michigan Hospitals. Bev has been working as a full-time artist since receiving her MA in Studio Art from Eastern Michigan University in 1988.
