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.

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.
