Bethany Andrews-Nichols of Beenanza is an artist, designer and block-printer from Burlington, Vermont.
She loves finding innovative ways to interpret a "print". This could become a giant block-printed mural, a washi-taped "sketch", a hand-printed pattern on leather, fabric or paper OR simply getting lost in a design. After graduating with her BFA in 2006 - she worked several design jobs rounding out her corporate career as the Associate Creative Director for an in-house agency that supported several national breweries. In 2017 she took a trip to Jaipur, India to learn about the art of block-printing at its source. It was this technicolored adventure that inspired Bethany to start Beenanza in 2018.
She is not a perfectionist, but at her core she is a designer trained to strive for perfection. It is this conflict that drives her work - no matter if it's graphic, washi-taped or block-printed, her illustrations and patterns emit a sense of sheer joy. You can't help but crack a smile.
