Mary Beth Shaw worked in the insurance industry for 18 years before she quit her job in 2000 to re-ignite a childhood love of art. She is now a full time mixed media painter and internationally known workshop instructor. Her creative process is largely self taught, spontaneous and joyful. She welcomes so-called mistakes as they offer opportunities for problem solving, experimentation and artistic growth. She is author of Flavor for Mixed Media published by North Light Books and is also a columnist for Somerset Studios Magazine. In 2010, Mary Beth recognized a need for 'artist designed' stencils and created StencilGirl Products, which has quickly grown into a respected supplier of high quality stencils for all media. Living with her husband and three cats, Mary Beth is passionate about every moment of life.
