About Mary Beth Wiseman:

Mary Beth Wiseman attributes her artistic inspiration to the beauty she finds in nature. She haunts the trails along Spring Creek near Bellefonte, capturing her observations with her camera. Once home, she translates the photos into portraits by hand carving her subjects into rough wooden planks, using a variety of chisels, gouges, and planes. The bas-relief carvings are then painted with acrylics. This technique produces a stunning dimensional effect in the final piece. Mary Beth hopes that her works will foster a greater appreciation and awareness of the amazing creatures and environment that we all share.
