Seeking the good, the true and the beautiful.

My name is Bethany Cochran, and welcome to my studio! I am a binary-minded artist, which means that there is a constant push and pull between my analytical and creative propensities. I have found resolve to this dichotomy through my career choice and my artwork. I work in healthcare data analytics by day and put my artist smock on in my off-hours. I am known to nerd out equally over spreadsheets as I do mixing color palettes. A similar dichotomy exists in my artwork as well, where you will find equal parts discipline and free-spiritedness. Depending on the collector, I’ve discovered that a broad spectrum of people can identify themselves with  my work, connecting to either the discipline (realistic forms) or the free-spiritedness (gestural brush strokes or minimalist abstract work). I work in a variety of mediums, and currently offer original works in acrylic and alcohol ink.  and primarily focus on portraits and figures. 

I live in North Carolina with my husband who is my best friend and adventure partner. Until 2019, I solely worked on a commission basis. It has been a joy to share my first few collections with you this year:  the “Women with Flowers” painting collection and "Stanza" line drawing collection (shop originals here).
