About Beth  

Thanks for visiting my site! After graduating from University of Richmond with a degree in English and Studio Art, I fell in love with Richmond and decided to call it home. I turned my passion for writing and art into a communications career in financial services with a side business as a freelance artist. My favorite mediums are pen & ink, acrylic paint and polymer clay. Whether it's a pet or classic car portrait, house drawing or colorful acrylic painting, I love working with clients to create custom works of art just for them.


In 2012, inspired by my love of Richmond and my nephew Jack, I wrote, illustrated and published my first children's book, Jack & the Richmond Bubble. In the book, Jack goes on an adventure around the city of Richmond with a magical bubble. Purchase a copy for an RVA enthusiast, or ask me about scheduling an author visit for elementary school kiddos.

In 2015, I launched my BubblesTinyCakes shop on Etsy. ​Bubble's Tiny Cakes are custom miniature replicas of wedding, anniversary or birthday cakes, handmade with polymer clay & acrylic paint. I work from photos of actual cakes, and recreate them in sizes ranging from 1 inch to 2.5 inches tall. A Tiny Cake makes a great ornament and is the perfect gift for newlyweds!
