About Betty

Having tiptoed around artistic pursuits all my life, I finally had the time necessary to study art in retirement.   As my precious grandchildren were born, I knew I wanted to capture their likeness at this wonderful time in their lives.  They were definitely  my inspiration.  I have taken classes at Anne Arundel Community College, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, and St. John’s College focusing on portraiture.  I have recently shifted from oil to watercolor  portraits  which in most cases I prefer.  I like the spontaneous nature of watercolor.
