“Betty Anne, originally from Montreal, moved to Cornwall in 2014. An art course in high school awakened her interest in the arts. An avid visitor to art galleries, she dreamed that “one day” she would develop the skills to paint well and be an artist.
A chance meeting with a watercolourist from Focus Art, in Cornwall in 2006, rekindled her dream. She started to paint initially in watercolour, then oils, taking coaching classes. Recently she has been “experimenting” with melted crayons and painting with a hot iron ( a form of encaustic painting)
Betty Anne loves the outdoors. Her art reflects her love of nature, in particular, birds, flowers, trees and seascapes. She enjoys the challenge of artistically, bringing her subjects to life.
A Focas Art Member since 2014, her art has been shown in three juried shows. Her watercolour, oil and encaustic works will be on display at Apples and Arts.”
