Beth Ann is a mother, a wife, and an artist. She’s carved a small studio out of a storage closet, and carved a painting career between naps and dishes. Her everyday life inspires her; the fruit on the counter, the trees outside her window, the faces surrounding her. She’s been described as quiet, and that might be because she finds it easier to speak in colors and shapes than words. Painting is solace. Organizing color patterns helps her to filter through the tones in her head. A compulsion to create has been with her since childhood. She followed her dreams of a light-filled studio with piles of blank white canvases to a fine arts degree in painting at Arizona State University. Recently she has been bringing her own experience with motherhood into her art through both abstract and figurative, patterned pieces. Her love of adventure, creativity, and learning are what drives her to keep creating amid the craziness of home life.
