“We find only the world we look for.” - Thoreau - This is a favorite quote of Bethany’s, which resonates within her as she brings color to paper. Primarily a pastelist, Bethany has been surrounded by art in many forms since youth and is constantly looking for beauty and how to express it. Dance, music, theatre, and photography studies have molded her particular vision, which focuses on light in the landscape and how it affects mood. Bethany graduated from Texas Tech with a BFA in Theatre. She went on to perform professionally and continued honing her skills in composition and design working in Burbank, CA for a DIY web series. Her creations have been published in several national magazines, including Country Living. In 2016, Bethany exhibited at both the Salmagundi Club and the National Arts Club in New York. She travels nationally and internationally for art societies and workshops, and produces her own Youtube channel, teaching and demonstrating her pastel techniques. Bethany, a proud 7th generation Texan. She and her husband of 17 years are raising their three children in Amarillo. She paints daily in her home studio and is an active member of the American Impressionist Society, The Degas Pastel Society, and is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America.
