Canvas Rebel Interview: Meet Beth Braun 


"We caught up with the brilliant and insightful Beth Braun a few weeks ago and have shared our conversation below.

What’s the most rewarding aspect of being a creative in your experience?

For me the most rewarding aspect of being an artist is the opportunity I have every day to impact the lives of people who experience my art. My experience with art has been that I have the ability to communicate in a deeper way that mere words may not be able. It is incredibly rewarding for me to be able to express myself in a positive way and have the opportunity to inspire others through my art. I have personally seen how challenging and overwhelming life can be. Dance has literally saved my life numerous times and I feel grateful and honored to be able to inspire and share a sense of hope with others who might be experiencing their own challenges through my art. Equally rewarding is having the means to spread passion, beauty and joy through dance."
