She relocated to Southwestern California, where her paintings began to be influenced by the intensity and interplay of light. Krulle-Beaton graduated form SDSU with a B.A. in Environmental Design. Her work is representative of expressionist and abstracted elements of nature.
“The object of my art is not to reproduce nature, but to define the essence, energies, and intensity of it. I want to create paintings that draw the viewer to them and possible generate a significant event or joy in their lives.” – Krulle-Beaton
