Bethany Marchman studied at Columbus College of Art and Design and the University of Georgia. Marchman worked in Atlanta as an illustrator and storyboard artist until recently when she decided to focus solely on painting. Using traditional oils to create parallels between innocence and influence/ history and popular culture, Bethany Marchman’s paintings are sometimes funny and sometimes sad. They are reflections of the awkward changes we experience as individuals and as a society, while questioning whether or not growth is synonymous with improvement. Marchman’s work has been exhibited in galleries across the country and internationally, as well as in notable art fairs and museums.
