This body of work is based on the area I now live it which is know as Tanglewood. My husband and I often go out on our kayaks and fishing boat very early in the morning or at sunset. I use both my camera and my phone to capture the beauty of light and nature at its best. I then use the photos as a source of inspiration.

Beth was born and raised in Coral Gables, Florida, went to college at Florida State University and moved to Tampa in 1991. She has spent the better part of her life doing what she loves most: painting, teaching, and raising two children with her husband Bob. Her father, grandmother and cousins were all landscape and floral painters using oils, so her artistic passion came very naturally to her.
Beth received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from Florida State University in 1984. While at FSU, Beth studied figure drawing, commercial art, drafting, mixed media, pottery, photography, watercolor, sculpture and print making as part of her major. Beth has over 30 years of teaching experience through Kokol Art Studio, as well as numerous volunteer positions at Mitchell Elementary, JCC, YMCA and Berkeley Preparatory School, “Meet the Master’s Program.”
In 2012, after more than 12 years of teaching full time at her studio, and creating her own work, Beth decided on a major expansion and moved to her “new” location on Bay to Bay Blvd. The colorful South Tampa bungalow, now known as Kokol Art Studio & Gallery is a renovated, custom space that works as a studio, gallery and special event venue.
Since the debut of the first art show in November 2012, Beth’s very own, ”One Woman Art Show: Swirling Mind,” the doors of the Kokol Art Studio & Gallery have been opened for local, national and international artists, as well as emerging artists. Besides offering a unique showcase for professional artists, Beth is a big believer in “paying it forward” by helping new and emerging artists break into the art business.
She is also a firm believer in “giving back to your community,” and to that end, does volunteer work with various organizations, hosts fundraising events at the studio, and whenever possible, gets involved in helping local arts events. Beth has been active in several public works projects in Tampa including: the Outdoor Arts Foundation, Hillsborough Arts Council’s, “FIVE by FIVE,” Erase Hate, and Painting the TaTas, to name a few.
Each year Beth attends professional seminars and workshops such as, Penland School of Crafts in Penland, NC, and studies privately with art professors around the country as a way of enhancing her own art work, teaching skills and Gallery development. Beth likes keeping current and fresh so that she can offer the best art experience to her students, to the clients who collect her work, and for the many Gallery shows she will continue to host.
Beth has been published for some of her sculpture work, as well as her paintings. She continues to be a part of group and one-woman shows where she displays her photography, watercolors, acrylics, oils, mixed media, sculpture and printmaking. In addition to creating art in her studio on Bay to Bay, Beth maintains a private studio at her home, utilizing both places to create collages, drawings and paintings for commission and purchase.

This series of abstracts are made of Acrylic paint that is first painted on a surface other than canvas. Once the painting is finished it is then pealed off and then mounted on Archival paper. Often times I go back and paint on the again after I mount them on the paper. Some of these are unmounted as they can be framed between two pieces of Plexiglas so that they can be viewed from either side. They look much like stained glass at that point.
