Betsy specializes in portrait and figure painting on reacted copper panels. She works with acids, metal, and unusual materials to create rich substrates for her paintings, which explore the human psyche and its relationship to other people and the world. Since taking her undergraduate degree in painting, aesthetics, and philosophy from Union University (Jackson, TN), she has worked as a metal smith, artist, and art tutor while showing in solo and group exhibitions and giving talks on the practice and philosophy of art. In 2016 she attended a residency at the New York Academy of Art in lower Manhattan, upon completion of which she moved to Franklin, TN to further develop her work in portraiture.
