Betty Grummer

Betty Grummerwidth=

The artistic process, for me, is more than employing various painting techniques; it is an expression of the spirit. My passion for creating art began as a small child and that passion continues to the present.
I was born in New Orleans and grew up sketching and painting in the French Quarter, parks bayous and plantation homes.
My inspiration comes from nature, things familiar in my environment and expressing myself while using my artistic imagination.
Since moving to Texas I have studied art at Tarrant County College and the University of Texas in Arlington. For 5 yrs I worked in an art studio located in the historic Ft. Worth Stockyards, where my art was sold to people from countries such as Japan, England, Italy and throughout the USA. In recent years I have had the pleasure of illustrating children’s books.
I thank God for the gift He has given me and it is my desire that my work will glorify Him. When I work I feel a closeness to God and hope that the viewer will in some way sense a spiritual connection in my art.
