Beth Marchant has been drawing and painting professionally for over thirty years during which her work has, and continues to include, marine, animals and architectural subjects. In the architectural genre, she has had more than 1000 private commissions from all over the United States. She credits her love of architecture to the success she has had through the years for architectural renderings and house portraits in watercolor. For over 20 years she has been the designated illustrator for The Guidebook for Historic Garden Week in Virginia, painting approximately 30 watercolors for each annual issue.
A studio art major in college, Beth has throughout her career constantly continued learning by reading books by acclaimed artists and studying the works of those she admires.
“I especially like painting en plein air and do so every chance I get, whether traveling or at home in Richmond. When not painting, I enjoy giving drawing workshops. Until recently most of my paintings were commissions. Now I am increasing participating in gallery and juried exhibitions.”
