Beth tenHove is a contemporary landscape painter, creating large abstract paintings in bright fluid acrylics. Her work is a celebration of coastal landscapes and life on the shores of Lake Ontario. Beth's paintings are highly textured and layers of transparent colour are used to explore the reflection of light and hidden layers within the natural environment. A central theme of her work is the visual symmetry of land, water and sky as they converge upon a common horizon.
Beth's passion for art began in her youth. She initially pursued a career using 'art as therapy' in her work as an occupational therapist, eventually launching her career as a full time visual artist in 2006.
Beth's work is deeply connected to her spiritual practices which include transcendental meditation (TM) and yoga. She currently lives in Kingston, Ontario, where she spends her days painting and giving herself permission to live a gentle life!
