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.
"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".
