A resident of East Hampton, New York, Beth Rundquist paints portraits, still lifes, figures and plein air landscapes. Its refreshing to see an academically trained painter, who borrows liberally from the impressionist tradition to imbue hear realist paintings with an uncommon lushness. Her art education began with a degree in studio art from Smith College, and includes study at two of New Yorks finest art schools, The National Academy of Design and The Sculpture Center. Rundquist has also studied at prestigious regional art schools in New England, such as Lyme Academy of Fine Arts, Vermont Studio Center, and Woodstock School of Art. In the tradition of American artists since the turn of the 19th century, Beth also studied in Paris at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts.
