Beth is a graduate of Paier College of Art, Hamden, Connecticut. She was fortunate to study under Yale professor and former MFAA officer (Monuments Men!), Deane Keller, Pulitzer Award winner (for painting), Rudolph Franz Zallinger, and well known illustrator, Howard Munce of Westport, Connecticut, who along with many other skilled professors, led a rigorous traditional fine arts curriculum including a unique emphasis on trompe l’ oeil painting.
Upon graduating from Paier College of Art, Beth relocated to Kansas City to serve as an artist, studio manager, and creative director at Hallmark Cards Inc. Inspired to return to painting, Studio Beth A. Grillo LLC was created in December 2013. Beth finds inspiration in nature, light, and the Impressionist painters.
Beth has been featured in the Society of Illustrators Annual, exhibited paintings in Connecticut, Kansas, and Missouri, and has paintings in private client collections in New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Kansas, and Missouri.
