Beth McCormick fell in love with unusual architecture as a child, when she summered at the Onion House with her Auntie Dofeen. Beth later had the opportunity to purchase and renovate the Onion House, part of her family’s legacy, which has become a widely acclaimed example of Organic Architecture. Beth McCormick’s artwork has been collected internationally, and ranges from the natural splendor of feathered masks and shields, to landscapes and figures rendered in pastels and oils. The artwork and home have been chronicled in many television and print features, and her artwork has been shown in over 90 galleries nationwide and abroad. Her work is in many private collections, including the Michael Rosenberg Collection in London, and the Chris Hemmeter Collection in Hawaii. She also works to establish sustainability of the natural world through the Permaculture Foundation of Hawaii, of which she is a founding member.
