"The dog will be in my heart forever. Beth Steimel Barger So grateful I have this beautiful portrait of my sweet hound."


BiographyAfter earning her Fine Arts Degree from East Carolina University in Graphic Design, Beth Barger began her career in advertising and design. Beth's art calling was interrupted during the last 16 years of her career while she applied her subjective problem-solving skills to human resource challenges for an international corporation. In going full circle, she is returning to the fine arts to pursue her painting passion.
With today's hectic, automated and machine-made world, Beth paints as a way to celebrate the wonders of life. Through her paintings she strives to give others a reason to step out of the hustle and bustle to contemplate the beauty found in the way the landscape changes as the sun moves across the sky, the warm shadows that embrace a treasured home place, or the sparkle of whiskers on a much loved family pet. 
Beth was born in Syracuse, New York. As a Navy dependent, she enjoyed experiencing life in a variety of coastal towns before she settled with her husband in Apex, North Carolina.  
Artist StatementI’ve been accused of seeing life through rose colored glasses. I took it as a compliment in that I focus on the positive by turning lemons into lemonade.
As a representational impressionist, I paint a variety of subjects. The common theme throughout is a cheerful interpretation. Through my paintings, I want the viewer to feel the hug of a warm smile. I do this by focusing on how light and shadow kiss each other, revealing hope, beauty and a bright future. The loose brushwork conveys a joyful freedom of expression.
