Artist Statement

I enjoy being able to express myself through Abstraction in my paintings. My inspiration comes from nature and time spent outdoors. I am influenced by color, line and movement. I allow the paintings to flow organically without a lot of preconceived notions.

My medium of choice is acrylic paint on a large canvas using traditional paint brushes, but it is not uncommon for me to raid my husband’s tool box for more unconventional tools such as drywall trowels. Often the paintings have several layers until the final result is realized.

My recent work involves collage using a variety of mediums.

I enjoy the fact that others can interpret my paintings in ways that were unintended and yet fits their personal interests and feelings.April 2015 Betty Ann's Art 004
