What her clients say

"Beth combines hyper-creativity and analytical ability in the most unusual way. She is full of ideas, often surprises and always delivers!"

As an emerging artist

Beth’s work is imagination: a bird bathing in a martini glass; mustard dancing in ketchup; a curiously reoccurring line of C++ code haunting an old computer screen. She builds thin layers of acrylic on canvas, uses colour, light and collage to reflect mood and thematic undertones. Drawn to narratives with a spark of humour, she introduces something new into everyday scenes.
