Beth Westra, Maine collage artist

28 Jan

Beth Westra is an artist local to our store in Yarmouth, Maine where we show her beautiful, richly colored collages. You can also view her work in our West Palm Beach, Florida store. Her landscape and still life collages are a perfect companion to our Maine Cottage colors and style and will be stunning in the Charleston Designer Showhouse. Beth is also an elementary school teacher who lives in North Yarmouth, Maine with her husband and two children.

Beth uses decorative papers from around the world to create her colorful and fanciful still lifes and landscapes. She’s inspired by the rich variety of paper and the combinations of color she is able to incorporate into her compositions. Beth works in a home studio and creates much of her work in the summer months when she is on a break from teaching. The repeated subjects often seen in her artwork represent summer in Maine. Below are samples of her artwork. For more information visit her website: www.bethwestra.com.
