Beth Kerschen

Beth Kerschen is photo-illustrator based in Portland, Oregon who creates photo-montage scenes of urban centers. In her work, she blends architecture, urban details, and fleeting moments to tell a richly layered story not possible individually. Her work is influenced by a Fine Arts Degree from Colorado College, working at Polaroid Corporation for 5 years, working as a graphic designer for 12 years, and her love of photography and traveling. Now she works as a full time artist creating her photomontage work for gallery exhibits, a retail line of cards and prints, and corporate installations. In 2015, she was awarded a Professional Development Grant from Portland's Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) and a large format installation commission for the Portland International Airport. She uses a unique blend of photography and printmaking to create urban landscapes that chronicle city culture and history creating nostalgia for the build environment that is an integral part of our modern culture.
