I met a lady recently with an unusual art vocation that I thought you might like to see.
Beverley Currie of Newport, on the Redcliffe Peninsular, Qld. Born (Carnie) at Mooroopna in 1939; a small country town near Shepparton Victoria, and lived in Numurkah for 33 years. Beverley’s back-ground was nursing, having worked in Mooroopna, Numurkah, Geelong and Sydney before leaving the medical field to go into business in 1978; becoming a very successful business woman in her own right.
In 1982 whilst still running several of her businesses, Beverley discovered the art of eggshell decorating. The fascination of creating exquisitely beautiful pieces of art from an eggshell has been her hobby and passion since.
For 22 years Beverley travelled regularly to the U.S.A. to further her knowledge, studies and expertise, which she has imparted to others around Australia, having taught numerous people, both men and women, in every State in Australia.
Exhibiting at small Art & Craft Shows, soon lead to invitations into the larger Shows such as the ‘Women’s Weekly Craft Show’, ‘Stitches & Craft Show’ and numerous others, travelling to all major Regional and Capital Cities throughout Australia.
‘Eggery Supplies’ and ‘Eggshell Artistry’ were both Beverley’s original supply and teaching businesses in Australia before selling off part of both.
“I have helped thousands of people to enjoy this beautiful art through teaching, and my online catalogue supply business. The internet has bought a whole new international market to my door.” says Beverley.
