Originally from Montreal, after retiring from a 20 year career in the banking industry Betsy decided to pursue her life-long passion for design and colour. Following completion of the Fine Arts Certificate program in 2010 at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, she began to develop her unique expressionistic abstract painting style. Based in her Cobourg studio since 2011, she specializes in highly original work in acrylic on canvas. Using a limited colour palette, she does not plan or use a reference – instead colour is mixed directly on the canvas using knives and brushes, allowing the piece to take form via a variety of techniques. Betsy’s work continues to evolve, and she often finds new inspiration from favourite artists Cezanne, Hans Hoffman, Diebenkorn, Kandinsky, and Gerhard Richter.
