In the mid 80s Beck moved to Cape May, after a few years she and a friend opened a very successful decorative painting and mural business.

As an introvert I like to create art that expresses my “inner” personality. From a viewing distance my work appears very harmonious and put together, as you get closer it might seem a little bit cluttered and it makes you look closer. I enjoy when someone feels a connection to one of my pieces. My subject matter is nature, usually an animal or landscape but sometimes a human figure appears. I enjoy using mixed media, I am a collector of cool stuff and I like sharing that with a viewer.
