Betsy Horn interprets how she responds emotionally to her subjects through her unique use of color and line. Working primarily in acrylics, she uses color to either portray a subject so that it is recognizable or she exaggerates and abstracts what she sees. Outlines are used to define areas of contrast as in a stained-glass window. Highlights and shadows are added with short strokes and dots. The end results are remarkable explorations of the spiritual experiences that she has discovered within nature's colors and patterns.
Betsy Allaire creates vividly-hued, nature-inspired visuals that she paints directly onto silk. Using special dyes, Betsy meticulously applies layers of intermixable thin colors onto a prepared fabric strip until she obtains an image with a bright and bold palette. Silk painting has a 3,500 year history in Asia and has been practiced for hundreds of years in Europe. Betsy's lively floral motifs are abundant in rich, swirling designs that build upon ancient tradition.
