Bettie has worked in a variety of media including clay, wood, found objects, fabric and thread. Bettie obtained her BA in Art with a focus in sculpture. She started out with traditional sculpture and moved on to found object pieces. In the mid 90's she transitioned into fabric.
Bettie is interested in the interaction between color and texture. Her quilts utilize bright fabrics, whimsy and a sense of humor. She lives in central Vermont with her partner Bob, three dogs, five chickens, and a hive of bees.
