A Well Drawn Life

Beth Law

From a young age Beth Law was encouraged by her parents towards self expression through drawing and painting.

On completing high school Beth started studying art at Perth TAFE. This experience fostered a lifetime love of attending art classes run by professional artists.

As for many people it was a good teacher who taught lessons that went well beyond the curriculum. For Beth, this person was Curtin University sculpture teacher Nola Farman who helped Beth to believe in herself and her creativity.

A lesson that Beth, herself a high school art teacher, was no doubt able to pay forward with her own students. Retiring from her 30 year teaching career in 2006, Beth has embraced the opportunity to pursue her own art work. Moving to the Rockingham area south of Perth, she is enjoying the time she now has to focus on her own painting and spinning.
