A love of narrative and the desire to generate intimate experiences between spectators and her paintings, Beth Kehoe cultivates fathomless emotion through her stories inscribed on canvas. An artist through and through, Beth maintained a prosperous ceramics career for over two decades before pursuing her destiny of figure painting with her twist of contemporary expressionistic styles that intertwine with her creations. While Beth traded sculpting for oil and brushes, she still incorporates the wisdom she acquired in her years of ceramics.
“The physical presence and detail in my paintings are influenced by my career as a collected ceramicist. The aim of my paintings is to entice the viewer with works that are direct and beautiful, disturbing and quiet.”
