Beth Haizlip was born 1958 in Charleston, South Carolina. She was encouraged by her parents to draw, paint, and appreciate art at a very young age. She graduated from Florida Southern College 1980 with a Bachelor of Arts degree, married a navy pilot, and settled in Jacksonville, Florida.
"I am known for my vibrant colorful Florida landscapes, flowers and still-lives. Having my art work chosen for the Jacksonville Jazz poster for 2007 has been very exciting and a turning point for my career. My goal as an artist is to use my skills in a painting to stir excitement in the soul and bring great joy to the spirit of the viewer."
