In Beth's latest series of works, she turns to a fanciful candy land for her muse and source of inspiration... Imagine a world where anything can happen. Mischief, intrigue and dreams abound in an imaginary Candyland where Beth’s female characters find themselves. Visiting this Candyland is a little like going on vacation where no one knows your name, who you are or what you are about. Themes of sweet overindulgence, temptation and forbidden fruit can be had without affecting your waistline. The possibilities are endless for good fun and adventure.
