Fini Q. Beunis was born 1922 in Limburg, the Netherlands. She had been painting since she was 16 years old. She studied art at the Art Academy in Maastricht, Holland. After obtaining her bachelorâ€™s degree in art, she studied two years with Dutch artist, Cor Driessen and spent one year studying with Bakker, an internationally known artist from Amsterdam.
In 1956, Fini with her husband Steve and two daughters, moved to the USA, settling in Portsmouth, VA. While living in Virginia, she gave birth to her son, Steve R. She attended Chesapeake College and Frederick College, where she studied American art. While in Portsmouth VA she also worked as an art teacher for six years. In 1969 Fini started showing her work at Seaside Art Gallery, in Nags Head, NC. She remained one of the most sought-after artists of Seaside Art Gallery for years.
Ms. Beunis won numerous awards in juried art shows, nationally and internationally. In 1975 her most treasured award came from the “Association Culturelle Pour La Connaissance Des Arts” in Paris, France. Her work was selected for an exhibition entitled, “The American Painters in Paris”. Being a nature lover, the subject matter for most of her realistic paintings can be found on the shores of the Outer Banks of NC.
