2021 Featured Artist Betsy Best

Betsy Best is a printmaker working exclusively with linoleum and wood. Before her printmaking studies at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, she earned a degree in Graphic Arts from Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan. Betsy attended a printmaking residency in Japan, studying woodblock printmaking with master craftsmen, with further printmaking studies in Florence, Italy. With a predominance of pattern and color, Betsy creates playful, ambiguous images using stylized figures and a disparate visual vocabulary. Her work has been featured in both solo and group exhibitions, and is included in City of Seattle art collection. Betsy currently resides in Flushing, Michigan. You will find Betsy in booth NU831 on North University during the Art Fair.
