About Beth Kerschen

Portland, OR

Beth Kerschen is a multi-disciplinary artist using photomontage illustration to create cityscapes that capture the spirit of community. After graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Colorado College in Colorado Springs, she moved to Boston, MA to work for Polaroid. Then she worked for ten years as a graphic designer with several creative firms in Boston, eventually moving to Portland, Oregon in 2008. Since that time, Kerschen has committed her life to capturing vast urban Landscapes into one tangible image. She uses her photography, design, and illustration skills to turn urban Landscapes into fantastical images filled with meaning and nostalgia. Her art celebrates the unifying connections held by the landmarks, buildings, and vistas of our cities that unify us. Kerschen was awarded a Professional Development Grant from RACC (‘15) and a public art installation commission at the Portland International Airport (‘16). Her work has been held in a number of corporate and city collections, including two terms in the Portland, Oregon Mayor’s office, as several hand-painted murals for a luxury residence by ConAm, and as large format artwork in the new JupiterNEXT Hotel guest rooms.
