is a visual artist with a background as a Chiropractor and Osteopath. Working from The Tannery Print Studio in Adelaide, Beth creates artwork that takes its inspiration from her former career as a health professional. Her work includes artists books, printmaking and small-scale bronze sculpture. She uses a wide range of techniques often combining traditional processes with digital technology.
Beth created her first limited edition book as a student in 2004. Since then she has continued to make a variety of artists books, some as discrete works and others that intersect thematically with her print and bronze works. Much of her work is emblematic of her ongoing fascination with the human form and its functionality; other books come from her personal history. These present an often outlandish story that simultaneously thrills and amuses, taking the viewer back to their childhood.
In 2011 Beth was awarded an ArtsSA Professional Development Grant to complete a month long residency at Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder in Norway. Her residency culminated with an exhibition of her work investigating the religious and folk magic origins of healing. Then in 2012 she was international artist in residence at Chhaap Foundation for Printmaking Trust in Gujarat, India where she gave a series of lectures on non-toxic printmaking and taught photopolymer workshops.
