Beth Trott

I have a distinct love for watercolor, a medium that takes on a role of its own in the painting process. Watercolor is my “dance partner”, making independent choices that are out of my control and that often strengthen the final artwork. An underlying theme in my paintings is a love of the human figure and a deep connection with our natural world. I paint things that capture my interest, be it for aesthetic or sentimental reasons, untethered to any one subject matter. In that same spirit I prefer not to get too attached to any one creative process, instead challenging myself to envision, plan and develop my art in unfamiliar ways. Ultimately, I am happiest when I am able to freely explore the mysteries and beauty of the people, places and things that surround me in my beloved medium of watercolor.
