Mary Beth Shaw

Photo of Mary Beth Shaw

Mary Beth Shaw worked in the insurance industry for 18 years before she quit her job in 2000 to re-ignite a childhood love of art. Her creative process is a dance between spontaneity and intent; she finds great joy in the physicality of paint and mixed media supplies. She considers her best work as a gift from a higher power. She welcomes mistakes because they so often provide a delightful detour into new territory. She is author of Flavor for Mixed Media and Stencil Girl. She works as an educator for Golden Artist Colors and Silver Brush Limited and founded StencilGirl® Products, LLC in 2010.
