Beverly Hughes is an an amazing friend from Millville, NJ. A botanical illustrator, her work has been featured on a postcard, part of a cache featuring the postage stamp designed by William Bartram, and available at Bartram’s Garden in Philadelphia.
Beverly was a fixture at the Burcham Farm, the last working dike farm on the now Wild and Scenic Maurice River.
The Burcham Farm, when it was still operational, provided fresh produce to the local grocery stores. They had a heard of sheep, and the annual shearing was an event. Beverly uses this wool to make yarn the traditional way.
She has recently illustrated and written children’s coloring books. Her website is a microcosm of her talents and projects. It is still undergoing some minor tweaks, but the major facelift is complete.
