Beth Davila Waldman was born in Princeton, NJ in 1975 to a Peruvian mother and a New York architect father. As a child, she quickly learned to define site as home as her parents moved her from Princeton to Cincinnati, Cincinnati to Houston, Houston to Florence, then back to Houston again. Deeply influenced by childhood memories to construction sites and museums, Beth pursued a career in the arts starting at the age of 15. She earned her 1st degree in art history and studio art with a concentration in cast bronze figurative works at Wellesley College in the Boston area. From east to west, Beth established her new and current home in San Francisco Bay Area 20 years ago. She continued her education at the San Francisco Art Institute with a focus on site-specific public art and installation. During those years, her many travels to international urban sites as well as explorations of San Francisco alleys served as inspirations to her site work. She is currently working on a series of large-scale constructed mixed media paintings combining digital media with traditional paint inspired by her travels.

Beth’s paintings have been exhibited throughout the San Francisco Bay Area at a selection of venues such as The Midway Gallery, Richmond Art Center, The San Francisco Art Institute’s Diego Rivera Gallery, Arc Gallery, and Kala Institute as well as throughout the US at the Maryland Federation of Art’s Circle Gallery in Annapolis, MD, the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans, LA and Galerie Protege in New York. Her work has been recognized with the Harold E. Weiner Memorial Sculpture Award in 2004 by the San Francisco Art Institute, the Sonoma Community Center Temporary Public Art Award for her site-specific installation entitled “Alternate Visitors Center of Sonoma” in 2007 and the Kala Institute Parent Artist Residency for 2017-2018.
Beth’s home and studio are based in Mill Valley, CA.
