More About Me

From early childhood Beth has had a fascination with space, the universe, life forces, light and everything that binds all matter together. Her creative interpretation of these is always the main objective of her paintings.

 She works mainly in very fluid acrylics and structure gel to add texture and movement. Using a technique of applying poured acrylic to canvas, which gives a high gloss, almost glass-like finish, her paintings are often built up by layering many paintings over each other – allowing parts of the under layers to show through – so that more depth can be achieved in the finished piece. Her work mainly falls within the genre of abstract/semi-abstract expressionism and surrealism.

 Inspiration comes via studying deep space photographic images, such as those taken by the Hubble telescope. Also, meditation and music are frequently used to induce a trance-meditative state, during which her paintings are initially visualised.

Light is the driving force within her paintings and this had led, in recent times, to her new methods of presenting her artwork with specially produced LED lightboxes, whereby each picture is literally illuminated from within.
