Beth Lo was born on October 11 of 1949 in Lafayette, Indiana, to parents who had recently immigrated from China. She received a Bachelor of General Studies from the University of Michigan in 1971. In her own words:
“My work in ceramics and mixed media collage revolves primarily around issues of family and my Asian-American background. Cultural marginality and blending, tradition and Westernization, language and translation are key elements in my work.”

“Since the birth of my son in 1987, I have been drawing inspiration from major events in my family’s history, the day-to-day challenges of parenting, and my own childhood memories of being raised in a minority culture in the United States.”
