Meet Beth Wagner


Beth Wagner has had a lifelong love of art and design.  She is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and worked for 25 years as a staff fashion illustrator and then started her own free-lance business.  She began giving painting lessons in retail stores such as Creativity and Michaels.  Beth soon expanded to giving lessons in her home studio, while creating original designs.  She also owned and operated a mural and furniture painting business specializing in residential and commercial work.  Beth has been published in various magazines, online publications, and books.  She presently teaches locally and travels to conventions regularly.   International cruising has enabled Beth to combine her lifelong passions for art and travel as she has the privilege to teach painting to the passengers.  Beth enjoys instilling creativity in her students and feels it is as important to the painter as technical knowledge.
