Listening To Raven

Drawings, Myths and Realities Raven called me to the high desert of New Mexico to create the art and story of Listening To Raven, an ongoing exploration of science and spirit. These detailed story drawings, created with pen and pencil, heart and mind, are a vision quest expanded by paying attention to small moments.

About my work:
Beth Surdut is an award-winning wildlife illustrator and storyteller who creates the illustrated nature radio series The Art of Paying Attention. Twenty episodes have been heard and seen on Arizona Spotlight/NPR since July 2015, where she can be found talking about a lizard in her pants, a javelina at her front door, Great Horned Owls in the 'hood, and a Harris' hawk outside her kitchen. She is particularly fond of those iconic tricksters--Raven and Coyote.

Her illustrated series, Listening to Raven, won the 2013 Tucson Festival Books Literary Award for Nonfiction. Her mystery, The Shirt Designer, was a fiction finalist in the 2019 TFOB Master's Competition. Orion magazine published her illustrated essay on the Las Conchas fire that roared through New Mexico, destroying high desert habitats.

Surdut spent three years paddling with alligators on the Myakka River in Florida. Ever drawn to wild places, she is a certified Environmental Educator. She knows from experience that if you pay attention long enough, you can see the whole world in your yard. And once you start looking, it is hard to stop.
Surdut is a designer and a colorist, a writer and visual storyteller creating. Integrates the patterns of nature and world cultures, her paintings,illustrations and wearable art are exhibited in museums and galleries internationally. Her studio provides custom design services for hotels and private homes, product branding identity, and licensing for reproduction by manufacturers including textiles, Hawaiian shirts, women�s apparel, giftware and home goods.

An adventurous world traveler, Surdut saturates her luminous art with the extraordinary colors of environments real and imagined. Noted for combining rich jewel tones and fluid movement during a 10-year career designing and fabricating architectural art glass in the Washington, D.C. area, the artist garnered commissions for private and public spaces, including 24 windows in a Middle Eastern palace.
Past Clients and Projects include:
Designing 24 windows for a Middle Eastern palace
Designing products for museums
Designing museum exhibitions
Created the original painting Come Walk With Me presented by the Sarasota Sister Cities Association to the mayoral delegation from Vladimir, Russia in January 2007, as well as a painting for a Cambodian relief organization for land mine victims.

As a journalist and commentator she examines topics ranging from sewers to senators, and is noted for artists' profiles and art business articles. She has served as arts editor and feature writer, and produced Talking Life: Walter Harrod's Stories an oral history CD told by an 86-year old woodworker. National Public Radio aired her essays on diverse issues including a six-part series on the business of art. During her career, projects involving visual art and writing have received multiple grant support, notably from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and Harvard Historical Society.
