Beth Loftin was born and raised in the Osage Hills of
Oklahoma and developed a keen interest in painting in early childhood.
The human figure has always been her subject; for years she supported
herself by doing commissioned portraits of Oklahomans.
She relocated her studio to Bozeman in 1993.
The artist’s oeuvre is as
much about color and composition as it is about storytelling. "As a
painter, I focus on people's relationships within cultural and
historical contexts," explains Loftin. "The people are
from a time that still lives in many of us. They have a simple but
profound story to tell and I want to help them tell it."
