I look for beauty and goodness in life. To communicate these elements I focus on celebrating people and places through art, which creates uplifting and inspiring images.
I am passionate about celebrating people and places, I love communicating visually and I am especially interested in expressing the unseen. Key themes in my artwork are strength, faith, spirituality, heritage, culture, the emotional / social and diversity. Limited tone, strong lines, interesting compositions and bold colour are key features of my artwork. My final pieces are usually paintings on canvas with embellishment, mixed media (paint, pencil, ink and sometimes elements of collage) on paper / card / canvas and ink drawings on paper.
I have been a prolific creator all my life and have studied Art to postgraduate level in the United Kingdom. I studied at University of the Arts London (Berkshire School of Art & Design) 1999 to 2000, Birmingham City University (U.C.E.) 2000 to 2003 and Reading University 2005 to 2006. I have worked as an Artist / Illustrator for many years and over that time have created many pieces of interesting and vibrant artwork for a variety of clients: from global publishing houses to individuals on independent commissions. I have a reputation for consistently creating high quality artwork, maintaining positive working relationships, being approachable and very professional. I have a lot of experience working on commissions and am happy working with a range of subject matter.

Our commissioned artwork was interpreted brilliantly reflecting Beth’s creativity and flare. Beth is professional, efficient and approachable. She made some suggestions to the original scope that we had not considered which made the end result stunning! J. Kirby
Beautiful artwork! The artist Beth, is a pleasure to work with. A. Wadington
Great communication throughout and very high quality art work. Would highly recommend. V. Bond
Beth was approached for a sensitive and specific mural, she was chosen due to her empathetic approach and her art’s ability to speak volumes whilst being gentle and subtle.
It has been amazing to see this artwork flourish from a few verbal ideas, to a digital design to a painted mural which is admired by everyone who sees it. This mural offers comfort, is gently thought provoking and mirrors the use and sanctity of the suite perfectly. B. Manning
