Artist Website:

Nebraska-based artist, Beth Cole, creates contemporary landscape paintings in oil. Her work centers on fields, trees, streams and buildings, and the effects of atmosphere and light upon them.

She has studied with many generous and accomplished painters including Jay Moore, Dave Santillanes, and Scott Christensen. Prior to painting, her degree in Human Services Administration allowed her to work with people in a variety of ways including twenty years as a small business owner serving clients in her web/graphic design company. Her background in small business influenced her development as a full time painter.

Beth has exhibited widely in her home state including Museum of Nebraska Art events and the Nebraska Biennial Exhibition hosted by Omaha’s Gallery 1516. Additional group shows include Colorado, Texas, and Wisconsin.

The small rural community of Merna near the Nebraska Sandhills is where she lives with her husband, Gary, and their beloved pup dog, Willow. They have two grown children and three grandsons with whom they enjoy spending as much time as possible.
