Beth Hall is an artist, herbalist and educator currently living and working in the outer suburbs of Washington DC. Born in North Carolina, she received her Bachelor of Arts in painting from Meredith Collage and her Masters of Fine Arts from East Carolina University. Beth has worked in the genre of portraiture for over twenty years, creating work that explores identity through the painted or collaged self-image as well as creating works on commission. Some of her professional experiences include studying drawing and painting in Paris, printmaking in Florence, and participating in a multimedia, traveling studio through Poland, Estonia, Russia and Finland. Through the years, her art has materialized into a variety of forms including video, installation and digital imaging concerning identity politics, feminism, motherhood, and the art of everyday life. Her work has appeared in venues such as the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, FADO Performance Art Center, Toronto, and UC Santa Cruz. Beth also works collaboratively with her husband and daughter on various projects, including SubHerban Roots, a community supported herbal and home-scale permaculture business located at their home in Northern Virginia.
