Bethany Richards, MD is a Santa Fe based doctor by day and artist by daydream who's love for nature began under the endless sky and rolling plains of her family's ranch in a small West Texas town. She attended art school at the College of Santa Fe where she became entrapped in the wonder of the high desert. After a drastic career change over to medicine, she has returned to Santa Fe to practice as a hospitalist doctor and begin her career as an artist. Her most recent artwork uses a reverse glass painting technique to capture the psychedelic and mystic wonder of Northern New Mexico, where layers of acrylic paint are applied to the back surface of the glass in reverse order, starting with the details and ending with the background tones for depth. As a physician she always strives to bring the liveliness, joy, and heartfelt connection to her patients as she does to her art. Life is just more colorful that way!
