Betsy received her MFA from the University of Kansas (2008) and her BFA from Western Michigan University (2003). Betsy's mixed media work has been exhibited across the country in venues such as the Coburn Gallery at Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio, the Olin Gallery at Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania, the Mary Brogan Museum of Art & Science in Tallahassee, Florida, and the Grand Rapids Museum of Art in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In her work, Betsy observes and investigates relationships, motivations, priorities, and passing time. Using her own experiences as fuel, she gives form to her ideas by combining and manipulating everyday objects, most often textiles and domestic "debris."
