Originally from Winston-Salem, Betty has lived in North Carolina, Georgia, California, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Each place she has lived has inspired her to explore and pursue her passion for art and experiment with a variety of media.
She has studied printmaking with Peter Chapin and Marie Sturkin, watercolor with Linda Lombardi, and pastel painting at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. During her career she has taught art in public schools, taught private art lessons, and has worked as a freelance artist. She has been an instructor at the DeCordova Museum School and Danforth Museum School in Massachusetts and worked on two public art projects.
Presently, she is working with pastels, watercolors, acrylics and mixed media. Returning to North Carolina and living in the Lake Norman area have offered new and exciting avenues of inspiration for her work. She enjoys her memberships in the Mooresville Arts Guild and the Piedmont Pastel Society. She is an award winning artist whose works are in private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
