Bethany Harpel is an oil painter originally from Billings, Montana. She was born into a family of artists', her father being an illustrator and fine artist. Her childhood was spent enjoying the outdoors of Montana with her family, so her work reflects the Rocky Mountain outdoors and family situations.
Bethany graduated from Montana State University, Bozeman with a Bachelor’s degree in Art Education. She met her husband Tyler Harpel at school in Bozeman and they moved to Crested Butte, Colorado in 2006. She and Tyler have three children who are her primary focus. All the while, she was raising children she painted and did commissions.
And now that her children are older she is painting again. Her expressionist style conveys the emotion of the beautiful place she lives and her love for family life. Bethany is a wonderful addition to our Artist Portfolio at Mystic Trinity and we are thrilled to have her join our gallery!
