Mary Beth studied Fine Art at the Université de Montpellier, France. It is easy to see the profound influence the diverse cultures embodied in the history of France and Europe has had on her work. From the subtle details of Middle-Ages to the bright vivid colors of the Renaissance, making up her acclaimed collection of fine art.Mary Beth’s work has been exhibited in many fine art shows, including The Rittenhouse Square Fine Arts Annual (America’s Longest Running Outdoor Art Show, founded in 1932), and The Brandywine Arts Festival (a nationally recognized show boasting participants from across the United States, and ranking in the top 100 shows in the country). She loves working in the traditional watercolors and acrylics that brought her acclaim, but also greatly enjoys working with new mediums such as alcohol-based color on non-porous glossy substrates and even redefining traditional work with her unique touch. She prides herself on her original one-of-a-kind design. Providing that personal touch, and tailoring pieces for individual clients and décors, from the modest Manhattan starter apartment to regal family homes.
Mary Beth’s mastery of fine detail and skillful use of depth made her 1 of only 24 Artists chosen by The United States Mint as a Coin and Medal Designer. This opportunity allowed her to once again expand her love of art in a new medium, designing coins and medals for the United States Mint.
Like many, Mary Beth’s love of art took a secondary role so that she could focus on motherhood and raising two wonderful boys who now both follow their passions. One is a semi-pro hockey team captain and pursuing a degree in sports and recreation management. The second is a counselor in the mental health field.
She also runs the only Hot Yoga Studio in her small Army-based town, to share her love of fitness and benefits she has gained from Hot Yoga with others.
