Marybeth Stafford, an illustrator of emotions, explodes with the challenge of creating images that captivate. Her viewers are drawn into a journey of discovery that helps them connect with God. Through a divine commission, painting is not only her vocation but her ministry as she trusts God to enlighten and empower her imagination with art of His heart.
Marybeth’s diversified methods, like layered storytelling, hidden and symbolic images, combining several mediums, and ancient texts, have resulted in a body of work that sets her apart. Always trying to find new ways to express God’s creativity, Marybeth can be found in her southern California home studio experimenting with oils, watercolor, pencil and other mediums.
From the studio to collectors world wide, God has used and ministered through her work. While traveling, speaking, and selling her art, Marybeth has been blessed and honored to see the emotional impact her work evokes. She compliments this ministry with her love of teaching where she imparts to others all that she has learned, instructing young and old to see the world with a brush.
