Mary Beth Shaw

Mary Beth Shaw works in Mixed Media because she loves to play with art supplies; she jokes that Mixed Media is for artists who can’t make up their mind. Her process utilizes pastel, ink, marker and acrylics layered with various collage and texture materials; she welcomes so-called “mistakes” because they lead to wonderful opportunities and discoveries. She is author of Flavor for Mixed Media, published by North Light and is at work on her second book. She is also a Columnist for Somerset Studios.

Living in Wildwood, MO with her husband and three cats, Mary Beth is passionate about every moment of life.
