Betty began painting in 1976, choosing oil as her medium, adding watercolor in more recent years. She is self-taught, specializing in realism and has also attended many famous artist workshops.
The artist has a talent for capturing Florida’s natural beauty in seascapes, wildlife, birds, and the Everglades, which has made Betty a local favorite for over 30 years. She is also accomplished in portrait and miniature painting. Floral painting in both oil and watercolors reveal her passion for flowers.
She has also won numerous awards with her work in area Juried and other art shows. To her, the greatest award she ever received was “The Peoples Choice Award”, which the public did the judging. Her work is exhibited in Europe, Canada and throughout the United States. Her limited edition print of the historical Sanibel Lighthouse is one of her greatest accomplishments. The challenge of art and the public appreciation is what keeps her motivated to continue a hobby that she dearly loves. She said “there is no greater feeling than seeing someone fall in love with a piece you have put your heart and hours of hard work into and know that they will take it home to enjoy for years to come”.
