Betty is self-taught, starting seriously in 2008 to work on her art. She is a Fellow of the Royal SA Society of Arts, and member of Artists Voice, Adelaide Art Society, the Red House Group and AGRA, and her work has been acknowledged with numerous Highly Commended and People's Choice Awards, as well as first and second prizes.
Realising that Landscape was not her forte, she has concentrated on Flora and Fauna, and Still Life, knowing that Portraiture was what she really wanted to do.
In 2012, her painting of Doris Younane (better known as the actress Moira in McLeod's Daughters) was selected for the Salon des Refuses (the alternate Archibald), as well as for the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture in Perth in the same year. Her painting of Pas De Deux has been selected for The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize 2013.
In 2017, she received the Award for Realism Art at the inaugural
Global Art Awards in Dubai.
Her works hang throughout Australia
as well as in other countries
Giclee prints and cards are also available.
