Born in Detroit, Michigan, Beth Billups is a mixed media artist who has exhibited her work and taught for the past 18 years. Her oil and cold wax paintings explore abstraction and express narratives that are at once personal and universal. Beth’s use of familiar imagery, mark making and repetitive patterns balanced by lush color, depth and texture to invite the viewer into each piece. The work is a reflection of her surroundings and a meditation on our connection to the natural world and to each other. She build layers of meaning by combining ephemera, oil paint and beeswax, rendering modern images in an ancient medium. Beth currently lives and works in Ann Arbor, MI.
