Beth Mueller was born in rural Indiana. Her artwork is inspired by having lived there, her travels, family, and day to day experiences. She received a BA from Eckerd College. During her time there, she also worked at Studio Santa Reparata in Florence Italy, learning printmaking. Upon graduation, she served a two year apprenticeship in the pottery studio of John Glick.
Before becoming a full time studio artist she worked as a camp counselor, supervisor for a housing shelter, waitress, bartender, and a French teacher, not necessarily in that order. She now designs and makes by hand a line of fine art prints, stationery and pottery in Barre, Vermont where she lives with her family.
