Note: Beaty studied at Glasgow School of Art, where her contemporaries included Joan Eardley and Margot Sandman. Her studies were interrupted by the war, and she was recruited to Bletchley Park, where she worked as a code breaker with Peter Twinn's team. As a cryptographer, Beaty's work formed a vital part in the war effort. After the war, Beaty returned to Scotland to resume her studies and career as an artist and teacher. She exhibited at (amongst others) the Open Eye Gallery Edinburgh, Collins Gallery Glasgow, Cadogan Gallery London, and Gracefield Arts Centre, where a major retrospective exhibition of her, and husband Stuart Beaty's work, was held in 2001.
