Bethany began her career as an artist when she created her first one-of-a-kind original Santa Claus figure as part of her Nostalgia for Nicholas Collection. These designs were, and still are, based on folk art legend characters from around the world, with her most popular designs inspired by her own imagination and life experiences. Vintage robes and fabrics, antique toys, and artist hand-sculpted faces set her work apart from the other artists, and serious collectors from around the world became enthralled with her attention to detail and supreme craftsmanship. These early days of delivering unique designs that resonated with folk art enthusiasts quickly earned Bethany Lowe a reputation as a visionary who would take the time and effort to make things the old fashion way.
In 2008 Bethany wrote the book “Bethany Lowe’s Folk Art Halloween,” a book sharing her creative style and methodology with Halloween enthusiasts everywhere. Three times Bethany Lowe was chosen from a pool of nationally known artists to design folk art decorations for the White House Christmas. Today, as she shares her imagination and memories, Bethany hopes to inspire you to build new traditions within your family.
