Beth Mueller was born in rural Indiana. Her artwork is inspired by having lived there, her travels, her 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 Gick.
Before becoming a full time studio artist, she worked as a camp counselor, supervisor for a housing shelter, waitress, bartender and French teacher - not necessarily in that order.
She now designs and produces a line of fine art prints, stationary and pottery in Barre, Vermont where she lives with her family. Her work is included in numerous private and museum collections.
