As an artist, Marybeth Heikes started early in life. Taking Saturday morning classes at the Cleveland Museum of Art inspired in her the need to create and paint the world around her. She has been drawing and painting all her life and considers herself self-taught with some workshops and college sprinkled throughout her career.
Marybeth’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the U.S. in numerous juried competitions. She has garnered many awards, especially for her series work “Chairs in the Jungle”. Her work has been published in the watercolor issue of American Artist; The Artists’ Magazine; Iowa Woman; Sunshine Artist; and The Best of Sketching and Drawing. Her work is found in many private and public collections throughout the United States and Europe.
