Beth is a sculptor, working most often in clay. “It is a very rewarding medium and one that have I worked in many times in my life.
She has taught art through the schools and different programs and led the YS Arts Council as President for many years. She also ran the Pot Shop for 2 years. Beth has given a lot to enrich the spirit of Yellow Springs.
At 3 Beth moved to YS. During grade school she started taking art classes with teachers from the YS Arts Council. Her favorite was a marionette class.“The marionettes were the real deal, not paper things. The kids carved the wooden parts, got to cast hands and shoes, it was all very intricate. Afterwards they put on plays with them." Later in her life Beth would make larger than life puppets of hometown heroes. She even coordinated a funky, free flowing village parade that included them.
