MaryBeth Koeze earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. She has been dedicated to image making using pastel as her primary medium since her graduation, and is currently a member of The Great Lakes Pastel Society. Concerning her work, she states: "I am seduced by the shadows created by the sun coming in at an angle, early in the morning or late in the afternoon. This light abstracts shapes with shapes and color within color. The forms, pattern, textures, tensions and color excite my eye. Using pastels or paint I push and pull working for the balance that registers the emotional pull of the subject matter."
