Beth Forst


Many of Beth Forst’s life experiences have lead her to become an influential artist and plein air painter.
A sales career in the graphic arts/printing field enhanced her knowledge before working as a mural
painter and sketch artist. Painting outdoors propelled her into full time painting, both on location and in
her studio. Now, her painting and lifestyle have become one...with her travels giving inspiration to her
painting and vise versa. Her focus for original excellence has lead to a remarkable body of work which,
as collector favorites, continue to make Beth Forst paintings best-sellers in many galleries. Beth strives
for works that please her ideals and reflect her joy of life. You will find her artwork in galleries and art
fairs throughout the Midwest, Chicago, and Florida, as well as private collections worldwide.
