Beth Bullman Regula, an esteemed artist from South Carolina, has garnered much attention for her unique approach to art. Holding a degree from Winthrop University, Beth’s journey as an art educator spanned various regions, including a stint in Atlanta working on computer-based training programs. Her artistic vision is deeply rooted in her perception of the world as an interplay of moving lines, which she captures in her works.
Beth’s artistry transcends traditional mediums. She skillfully blends materials like wood, paper, fabric, string, polymer clay, and paint, transforming pencil sketches inspired by nature and life events into intriguing mixed media creations.
Most people will tell you polymer clay is for crafting small trinkets and jewelry, but Beth wanted more out of this material. By combining it with string, wire, and other media, she has built large layered canvases and freestanding sculptures, packed with tiny details like leaves, seeds, and flowers. Her works often portray some element of the natural world weaving in among fluid human figures.
Her influence extends beyond her art. As chair of the management board at the Artists Collective | Spartanburg, Beth has significantly contributed to elevating the collective’s stature and has been instrumental in creating opportunities for visual artists in Spartanburg and the region through her role as co-chair of the Open Doors Studio Tour, and founder of the Annual Juried Exhibition, a five-state juried art competition held each year at the Artists Collective | Spartanburg.
Beth’s artistic expression and dedication to the arts community embody a blend of innovative creativity and community spirit, making her a celebrated figure in the Spartanburg art scene.
