Lowell began painting dogs in 2008 and joined the Canine Art Guild. Her repertoire soon grew to include cats, farm friends like cows and hens, wildlife and now small animals, an underserved niche in the pet portrait arena.
Beth was commissioned to paint a picture of hen Lola for Rachel Lamory, co-owner of Animal Nature in fall of 2012. The two subsequently collaborated to create a show devoted solely to small animals, a niche underserved in the pet portraiture arena.
“We have had lots of artists send work of dogs and cats, but no small animals…and we have SUCH a huge small animal following!” Rachel Lamory – co-owner Animal Nature, says.
Lowell is a member of the Canine Art Guild, The Pastel Society of New Jersey and is listed in the Directory of the WomenArts Network.
