About the Artist - Beth Horrocks
North Wales artist Beth Horrocks was raised on Anglesey, spending her formative years exploring and investigating the beauty of her surroundings. From a young age she was particularly mesmerised by the power and grace of the coastal vistas that formed the backdrop to her childhood.
The motion of the waves, the sounds as they crash into the shore; the variable aspects of something so transfixing has continued to play a large role in her life.
The natural world is adept at portraying innumerable moods and intensities, and these depths of emotion have found their way into Beth’s depictions of North Wales in her artwork.
After graduating with a Graphic Arts degree in 2003, Beth became a graphic designer working mainly in the watersports sector. As a by-product of working for 16 years in the computer aided design industry, the graphic pen and tablet has transformed the way she works. Beth no longer relies solely on sketchbooks and pencils, paints and mixed media to realise her ideas; instead her style has evolved alongside the freedom that technology has given her art.
"I love the great outdoors and see my work as a celebration of Wales’ outstanding natural beauty. I am particularly interested in the relationship people have with the coast, and how we utilise it to keep our minds and bodies healthy” - Beth
Beth is now married to a windsurfer, meaning even more of her time is spent in and around the water, and this familiarity with the natural world is imbued in every one of her pieces.
A selection of her artwork can be found in the online shop, where you can choose between canvases or framed prints. All designs are vector based and therefore infinitely scaleable, meaning the only limit is the amount of wall-space you have available. You can also view a wide selection of the artists' work in person at the Oriel Beth Horrocks Gallery in Caernarfon.
