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.

The cancellation of the 2020 Art Fair dealt a heavy blow to our organization's finances. It will take a long time to fully recover from the effects of the pandemic. That is why we need you now more than ever.
Normally, your contribution would support the educational and ancillary programs presented by the Original Fair; like the Youth Art Fair; the New Art, New Artist College Student Program; the Art Activity Zone; and the Demonstration Zone. However,currently, your contribution will help sustain us through this challenging time so we can continue to present high-quality fine art and craft for all to enjoy.
