Jonathan Beth, was raised in Israel by the Sea of Galilee. At a young age he discovered a passion for painting. With an aim to broaden his artistic horizons the artist moved to England, and then to Italy. It was in the cathedrals and museums of Italy that he saw his greatest growth. “The whole country is a museum,” Beth says of his beloved Italy. “I enjoyed getting lost while strolling through the streets of Rome and London. One never knows what he will find at the end of a little street, be it an ancient Roman statue, or a 17th century mural on the ceiling of a window you peek into, there is sure to be a treat for your eyes.”
In 1994, at the age of 41 the artist moved to the Sierra Foothills of California, where he currently resides with his wife and muse, Juliana. Jonathan’s growth as an artist has been fueled in many ways. This is most notable by classes he’s taken with the modern master, David Leffel. Jonathan paints classical pieces in multiple mediums including oils and watercolor. Lately Jonathan has taken interest in the art of photography, where his passion is to create fine art combining light, colors and “photo-painting.” Jonathan enjoys photographing weddings and special events.
