BIO

Betty began her art career as a Fashion Illustrator but started to paint as a form of therapy while recovering from a back injury. Fascinated by color since childhood her abstracts are reminiscent of the drawings she did as a child depicting geometric shapes and bright colors. She donates a portion of the proceeds from her work to charities that support Autism in honor of her sister who has autism and to charities that support Cancer research and initiatives in honor of her mother and both grandmothers who lost their battles with cancer. Her work can be found in private collections around the world.

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a contemporary abstract and figurative artist. As a child I spent countless hours rendering geometric and figurative shapes on notebook paper. My work reflects the shapes, figures and bright colors I enjoyed in my childhood. As the caregiver for my sister who has autism who is also an artist we use art to advocate for causes that are important to us.
