After majoring in finance at the University of Tennessee and enjoying a 30-year career in the financial industry Betty retired in 2004. This gave her the opportunity to devote full time and attention to pursuing her life long love of art. To further develop her oil painting skills through extensive study with nationally recognized artist David Leffel, Robert Johnson, and Tom Browning at the Scottsdale Artist School, Scottsdale, AZ. Betty studied early on with Master Artist Dean Fisher when he was teaching at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. Her work has been exhibited at the Denso Art Gallery, Maryville, Emporium Gallery, Knoxville, Knoxville Museum of Art, Quinlin Center for the Arts, Atlanta, Rose Center, Morristown, and numerous other places. She was one of the featured Artists at Dollywood's Harvest Festival for 8-years, 2006-2011. Betty is an avid supporter of the Knoxville Museum of Art, and the Union County Arts Council. She has served as a committee Chairperson and Board Member of the Tennessee Artists Association for many years. Artists Statement: "Put your heart into the picture and jump in after it" is my favorite quote. Through personal perspective and use of color and value I strive to reflect to the viewer not only what is transferred from the eye to the canvas, but also what is felt in the heart while doing so. Whenever possible I prefer to paint from life in the time-honored techniques of traditional oil painting. I always paint for myself. If it touches someone else, that's a wonderful bonus! My love of painting grows with every piece I attempt. " Love is seen through what we show."
