Beth Gatza is an award-winning, professional artist working out of her art studio in Los Angeles since 2010.  Her work has been featured in film and television, including "Miracle Workers" on TBS, as well as private collections nationally and internationally. Beth has taught art at two of Los Angeles' most elite private schools, and is an online content creator and teacher. Originally from the Midwest, she now resides on the west coast where she continues to paint portraits in oil and acrylic with a focus on unique perspectives of humans. 

"The quest for beauty is never-ending. I paint people because it forces me to get close and intimate with the most interesting, captivating, mysterious subject of all: my fellow human being."
