"My paintings are simple, yet there is always more than meets the eye. I paint; the painting is a journey unto itself. Enjoy the journey..."
Beth Cornell was born in Greensburg, Pennsylvania but traveled long and far to arrive at her current residence in Surprise, Arizona. Along the way, she faced challenges and made decisions, all of which shaped who she is as an artist today. A self-taught painter, her extensive background in graphic arts has given her an acute awareness of the power and nuances of color, an awareness that she uses to dramatic effect in her work.
Beth has always been an artist in some form or another. She painted on clothing and jackets when she was young and picked up a paintbrush after the birth of her daughter 15 years ago. She fell in love with acrylics right away.
"I consider myself a folk artist, an artist of the people, an ordinary person. I paint everyday things and experiences the way that I perceive them with my senses. My paintings can be enjoyed by people no matter where they fall on the economic spectrum. Success for me is creating something and having someone else fall in love with it and purchase it."
Inside Out Creative
In addition to fine art painting, Beth owns Arizona Energy Wellness LLC, based in Surprise Arizona. Through Arizona Energy Wellness LLC, Beth teaches workshops and classes in art and meditation - showing how the two are tied together and the connections to brain and behavior associated with both disciplines. She also ties movement to meditation in her Walking Meditation program that is suitable for all levels.
“This has been a wonderful class for me as an introduction to these forms of meditation. Beth has a very soft encouraging manner in leading the group. I intend to apply these techniques every day.”
