Biography


 
Since age four, Beth has been passionate about horses and art. She can remember drawing them as early as that, an indication of things to come. Throughout the years that followed, no matter what other things she was doing, she never ceased painting horses.
 
A horse owner for 45 years, Beth has ridden and competed with four of her Thoroughbreds. Although her riding days are over now, she still follows the foxhunts and spends time at racetracks and steeplechases. Painting subjects that she knows is important to her, and she knows horses intimately.
 
She has had 4 years of training in life drawing, oil painting, and illustration.
As she embarked on her fine art career, she followed the wildlife show circuit on the East Coast, always bringing some equine work with her. Her love for painting wildlife and canine subjects has become more evident in recent years as she is returning to focusing on them again. She hikes daily with her dog, spending an hour or two out in nature each day, even in the rain and snow.
 
All subject matter is taken from her personal experiences, whether it is equine related or scenes of nature. Her desire is to create a beautiful painting that will captivate and uplift the viewer. Her studio is tucked away in New Jersey's Sourland Mountain.
