Introducing Betsy Barry, an artist with 30 years in the realm of creativity.
While her creative journey has explored various mediums, including acrylic, watercolor, oil, and fiber, Betsy's heart has ultimately gravitated towards colored pencil and graphite. It is through these deliberate choices that she skillfully breathes life into her subjects. Whether delicately layering hues or crafting precise lines in colored pencil, Betsy's focus remains on capturing the very essence of her subject matter.
Betsy's unique approach involves rendering her subjects from life, often on location. This hands-on methodology allows her to intimately connect with her botanical and natural subjects, resulting in artworks that not only showcase technical prowess but also encapsulate the spirit and vitality of the living world.
Notably, Betsy holds designation of SBA Fellow from the Society of Botanical Artists, UK. She also teaches classes through the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven Ct., as well as at The Lyme Art Association in her hometown of Old Lyme, Ct.
Beyond the drawing board, Betsy's artistic vision extends into products for the home. Drawing inspiration from her botanical expertise, she has created a captivating line of products designed to bring the beauty of nature into daily life. From charming tea towels and exquisite notecards to tasteful napkins and stationery, each piece reflects Betsy's dedication to infusing our living spaces with beautiful things and the timeless allure of the natural world.
In a world where technology often distances us from the living, growing things around us, Betsy Barry's art beckons viewers to pause, appreciate, and reconnect with the natural beauty that surrounds us every day.
