Beverly enjoys telling personal stories and adopting folktales. She loves the connections that storytelling creates with an audience. "One story leads to another, and I'm drawn to the ways that stories touch the heart."
She is a retired teacher/librarian where she became renowed as a wonderful storyteller, captivating children and adults alike. She has told at the Toronto Storytelling Guild at Harbourfront and the Baden Storytellers Guild.
Beve has directed, performed, and costumed for Guelph Little Theatre and Puppets Elora. Each recognized her work with special awards.
In 2017 she was awarded the Lifetime Achievement award from the Guelph Youth Music Centre for her work with children in the dramatic arts. Her photograph and accomplishments can be seen on their Wall of Fame.
It is not surprising that out of a home rich with living arts experiences and love of story, Beve's daughter, Elizabeth Matson grew up to become a recognized, professional storyteller. Elizabeth lives and works in the US but GGS feels blessed when her home visits coincide with their events and Elizabeth becomes the featured teller.
