Beebe Slater


   As a child growing up in Indiana I dreamed of being an artist but never  received the training or opportunity to develop artistic skills.  Before the end of my banking career in California, I went back to college and took every art class I could find along with private lessons. 

    After my husband and I retired, we moved to a lovely home on the Umpqua River in Scottsburg, OR where I find inspiration in early morning sunshine and moody winter skies.

    I am a watercolor artist and I love to paint children,  animals, landscapes and flowers.  I have sold many of my portraits to private parties and I've won competitions in art clubs and county fairs.  I continue to take classes and display my art locally.   I am a member of the Dunes Art Club in Reedsport and the Watercolor Society of Oregon.
