Beth Alexander oil paints in a loose representational style. Landscapes are her foremost interest with their many forms, lighting and colors. She hopes to relate the wonderful color of light and the atmosphere in the world around us. She paints in both the studio and en plein air. Beth Alexander has found her bliss as an oil painter. She feels that the buttery texture and color possibilities of oil paint are endlessly intriguing.
After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and working as an elementary art teacher Beth turned to a variety of art forms: collage, graphic design, screen printing, paper making, acrylics and oils. She has studied with Tosun Bayrack; abstract expressionism, New York and Lilli Pell; representational impressionism, Wimberley, Texas. Her experience in the workshops conducted by Diane Pike; colorist, North Carolina at the Rockport Art Center have expanded her use of color in form.
Her paintings will show and share the experience of the ordinary scenery of our surroundings and capture their essence to give it a place in time.
Since formal training in school and in workshops she has strived to expand her expertize by working (being in front of her easel) every day. As a friend's poster says, "Paint To Learn, Learn To Paint." Painting with friends and plein air painting is a large part of her growth.
