Beth Nybeck received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Northern Iowa. She lives and works in Kansas City. She is a metal sculptor and public artist. Nybeck bends and shapes large sheets of metal into elegant abstract sculpture.
The natural world inspires her forms, and Nybeck is often out in the middle of nature, transfixed by the nuances she discovers. She will point out how the dew hangs within a spider web or the intricate pattern found on a decaying leaf, or how a field of wheat can look like the ocean on a particularly windy day. The power, grace, movement, and subtle nuances of nature are apparent in her artwork.
