Website Beautification
A sample of my Work

LizzyKate Enterprises
Amy and Will approached me to help them create engaging photos for the launch of their on-line tea business. They had the technical skills to pull together their website and Will is a photographer with high quality photo gear - he wanted to do most of the actual photography. However, they realized that they needed help staging the photos and beautifying their website.

Their goal was to build a rapport with potential on-line customers who want high quality, full leaf teas. Using props around their house and mine, I created vignettes that Will could easily photograph in his light box as well as a few that I photographed in natural settings. I also suggested a layout for the series of product shots he needed to take of each tea.

Once the photos were in place, I helped them increase their website appeal with a few tweaks of color, content and layout.

Here are some of the vignettes I created and photographed:

"Tea i
sn't the most exciting product for a photo shoot, but Beverly effortlessly pulled together props and produced stunning colorful photos that really pop out on our web site. I showed one of our tea vendors a photo she took of their tea, and they said it's by far the best photo they've seen of their tea! Beverly also helped us tweak the colors and layout of our web site; these were quick, easy fixes that made a big impact."     - Amy and Will Riffle, owners LizzyKate

Full Circle Farm
Autumn Harvest at Full Circle Farm is full of color and bounty. I was approached to photograph some of the luscious autumn crops for their blog. Though catching the beauty of the produce was important, they wanted a natural look - 'from farmer to your table'.

Here are some of the photos:

Invisible Bee Yoga
Invisible Bee Yoga in Minneapolis approached me, wanting to use one of my paintings to promote a special class: 'Dance Journey for Women'.

The yoga instructor told me she felt there was a strong connection between her class and my painting: Moonlight Serenade and once I read her class description I knew exactly what she meant!

Here are the lovely words describing her class:

"Reconnect with your unbounded, free spirit through this exploratory evening of movement and music. We will gather as women and dance our intentions and prayers, our flesh and bones, our shadows and our light. No dance experience necessary (at all!). Please wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move easily. This evening is an opportunity to “shake it loose,” to release tension, resistance and stress through free, organic movement, to awaken a sense of freedom and new possibility within your body and soul. Jessa will spaciously guide the process, weaving a unique theme and collective intention throughout the evening. All movement is at your own pace and level of intensity. There will be time for meditation and reflection upon the completion of our dance journey, so feel free to bring a journal if you wish to write.

If you just set people in motion they’ll heal themselves. - Gabrielle Roth"

Bead & Button Show, 2010

The Bead & Button Show in Milwaukee, WI is the largest bead show in the world, and I had the privledge of teaching there for many years. I was also very honored that a number of years they chose my artwork to advertise the show: in their catalog, on-line registration banners and show posters.

Here are examples from the 2010 show.
