JoBeth Hanak was born in Houston, TX with a passion for art from the very start. She grew up going to art museums, reading art books, and making art out of those terrible art kits that "art kids" always got for their birthdays. In high school, she had an amazing art teacher that helped her take her art to the next level. She started oil painting and finally found her favorite medium. She sold her first painting at 16 and went on to complete 2 AP art courses, receiving the highest possible score on her last one her senior year. JoBeth took a little break from art when she went to college and started her career. She graduated from UT Austin in 2017 and now works as a Business Development Representative at Zilliant where she sells SaaS software. JoBeth is back to creating art at night and on the weekends and selling her masterpieces (otherwise, she has learned, they pile up!). She enjoys painting a wide variety of subjects, pet/people portraits all the way to surrealist landscapes.
