ARTIST:                        Beth Lunsford, Stacy MN

 CHAIR NAME:          “Lazy Daisy”

Beth is a watercolorist.  She loves to paint with fluid colors and to use salt and other found items to create textures.  When the paper is dry, she looks at the painting to see if there is a hidden image, wanting to be released.  Other times she has a specific concept and lets the colors and textures add to the meaning of the image.   Beth was born in Baldwin, New York, and has a degree in art education from Asbury College in Kentucky.  She is a self taught musician and has been creating through many mediums over the years.   Beth has drawn, painted, written poems and written in journals to capture her thoughts, feelings and prayers.   Her artwork is available at Gustaf’s Galleries in Lindstrom.
