“ I look for places that that invite me to enjoy peace or ponder mysteries. I am seeking to communicate the beauty and wonder of simplicity. “

Betsy displays her landscape and seascape paintings on her website at and occasional local exhibits. She enjoys reading, visiting museums, and traveling anywhere she can spend time with family members who live out of town. Betsy is certified in art with endorsements in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education.
