Beth Horton holds a degree in creative arts therapy and majored in health science at Niagara University, graduating in 2000. Beth began working with monochrome imagery in her late teens, but her love for art began as a small child, watching her father paint into the wee hours of the morning. Her father was a prolific abstract artist working mostly in acrylic. She still enjoys abstract art, but prefers graphite pencil to acrylic layers. On weekends, she ventures out into the world around her to document the shape of her space in black and white.
