Beth Gully

Beth Gully began creating upside-down images when she accidentally dropped a doodle on the floor. When she picked it up, she saw, amazingly, another image. Upon additional sketching she created her first ambigram. (An image that can be inverted to become something different)

Now, one of 100 recognized ambigram artists worldwide, Beth has created a niche for herself. Using her talent, she has created two children’s books that are full of beautiful pictures, that when turned upside down, show an entirely new set of images. Beth has won 13 awards for her books including a gold ADDY award in Cincinnati, a Gold and two Silver Summit International Awards. Her Christmas book was awarded the Catholic Writers Guild Seal of Approval and her Easter book, "The Other Side of Easter" was awarded the 2019 Bronze Enduring Lights Medal in the Christian Children’s Books category at the Illumination Book Awards.

Beth started her graphic design business, BT Graphics, in 1990 and her experience continues to nurture her presentation and leadership skills enabling her to thrive as a successful entrepreneur and author.

Beth lives in Lebanon, Ohio with her husband Dave, and enjoys traveling, taking walks, playing guitar, and mentoring young artists.
