Beth ten Hove is a mixed media visual artist who began painting full time in 2005 after an illness gently (and at times not so gently!) nudged her onto a new path. Prior to this Beth worked as an occupational therapist for over 15 years.
Beth currently lives in Kingston, Ontario where she spends her days painting, being a mom and giving herself permission to live a gentle, happy life!
"We are not human beings
“All of my paintings, without exception, are inspired by my spiritual connection to the earth. The majestic tree has become a profound and personal reminder of the importance of standing tall in the face of sexual violence and oppression. The image of a lone tree deeply rooted and grounded on a windy ridge, resilient and strong, reminding me that there is great power in speaking the truth. And as the wind rustles through her leaves, she whispers: "child, the time is now, stand up and claim your new beginning".
