Artist's Statement:
     I am the first generation in my family to pursue and art career; my talent was nurtured and encouraged from a young age. Through my formal training at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, MD, I learned the fundamentals for building an art career and now have the knowledge to capture beauty, likeness, and emotion in my work.
Inspired by my upbringing on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, I paint to connect myself with the beautiful wonders of the world and to create works that inspire serenity and joy when you look at them by using simple designs, exaggerated bright colors , temperatures and values .
I want viewers to be attracted to my work from across the room with my signature bright colors or poetically simple style and be drawn in to see the details that can make the piece come to life. I try to evoke a feeling of happiness and positivity, whether the piece is a vibrant floral still life with bugs and dew drops or a portrait of an animal with a certain tilt to the head with the eyes expressing a familiarity and compassion to it owner.

Other Artists Say:


Beth is a tremendous artist who's style is both unique and uplifting. Mrs. de Loiselle Guerin is diverse in her talents but prefers to paint floral still-life and pet/wildlife paintings. Her color use is intense, her brushwork is soft, and her subject matter reminds you of what's beautiful and nice in this world. She makes paintings that are timeless, meaning that they could represent any period in time but never feel outdated. She truly embodies the Schuler School ethos of mastering the fundamentals established by the European Old Masters to express an idealized realism in her own voice. Her pet commissions are always well received, in fact, raved about consistently. She captures not only the likeness of the beloved furry family members but also that certain something that photos cannot capture. Beth's versatility allows for the client to choose exactly what they want to accompany their portrait, be it a simple background, a landscape, interior, or a vignette. As an artist myself, I can attest to her critical eye, often providing me with the key suggestion to help me make my paintings successful. The countless grateful students that Beth has influenced can attest to my lauding of her artistic knowledge and keen observations. Sweet and humble are apt descriptions of Beth's personality. Throughout time, observers of art have commented that every painting is a self portrait. That said, Beth is beautiful, polished, graceful, creative, and colorful.
