I love everything that is created through the imagination- the hand ,the heart and the eye.. music and the individual story. Art doesn't begin or end and lives within every being, once you know that, the puzzle is solved"
Bethany was born in picturesque Albury in southern New South Wales and grew up in the area attending local Schools.
Bethany found inspiration in art at a young age, finding it a way to both express herself and purge her overflowing mind as a child and teenager. She studied under artist and teacher (and Bald Archie finalist) John Skillington who has remained someone Bethany both respects and admires.
Bethany lived in Melbourne for a time before settling in the Queensland Gold Coast Hinterland where she now resides.
Bethanys' later teachers & mentors include oil artist and teacher Kevin Taylor, & well known artist Giselle Luske, gallery owner and writer for Artist Magazine. " Giselle taught me about finding the soul of a subject and how to encourage it to emerge"
Bethany's preferred creative mediums include oil painting, acrylic, watercolour, ink, graphite and mixed media.
Bethany has also studied digital media and graphic design and her works reflect her respective diversity.
