Travel with Betty to the Grand Canyon, Arizona, Utah, Palo Duro, Texas, New Mexico, and Western Canada. She painted landscapes that reflect her enjoyment of our beautiful country and each and every one relives for her the experience of being there. Betty uses her camera to capture those moments that she frames, first in her mind, and then at home when she makes a painting to set those memories in acrylic or gouache on canvas or gesso board.
Betty lives here in Kenosha County just up the hill from the Red Oak Restaurant. Her land, with its woods and ponds, inspire her. Betty’s studio is called the Blackwood Gallery.
The Anderson Art Center’s Area Artists room in Kenosha has played an important part in her art career as they have showcased her paintings over a period of at least twenty years.
Betty has been called an ‘’intuitive painter’’ by her art professors at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside where she taught for eleven years Intro Spanish courses as an ad-hoc instructor. This was in the eighties and now being in the eighties herself, she still enjoys creating landscape art.
