Urban Retrospectives by Beth Kerschen is a multi-disciplinary artist using photomontage Illustration to create cityscapes that capture the spirit of community. Beth has been working in the creative industry for over 20 years. After graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Colorado College, she moved to Boston, MA to work for Polaroid. Then she worked for ten years as a graphic designer with several creative firms in Boston, eventually moving to Portland, Oregon in 2008.
