Beth Stoddard is a Milwaukee artist who draws and paints from life with a modern sensibility. The nearby nature of urban parks and preserves is her primary motif. In the studio from figurative life drawings and plein air oil sketches she creates personally meaningful populated woodland interiors.
Her painterly realist pieces are held in private and corporate collections. She teaches observational painting and drawing, juries art exhibits, judges plein air competitions, and welcomes commissions.
