Predominantly self taught, Beth was finally able to pursue her art fulltime when she and her husband retired to Black Mountain, NC, in 2009.  She is fascinated by the tiny details and subtle nuances of line and shape that make each subject, and subsequently each image unique.  

Working in a variety of mediums, her goal is to portray each subject in such a way that the viewer is compelled to take a closer look.  As she works within the medium of scratchboard, where thousands of tiny scratches are deftly arranged to create lifelike images, she has found a niche where her attention to detail excels.
