I'm betsy from nj.
I am an art teacher grades k-6 (on hiatus til we get my sons seizures under control). I am a mom of 5 kids, 3 girls and 2 handicapped boys.
I come from a very artistic family, as a matter of a fact my dad just had a book of his cartoons published called "wicked humor" by skip sedore.
Doing portraits and now landscapes are what i call my sanity breaks (if i have any sanity left) lol. I'm 51 years old, married 27 years.
I have sold many of my portraits, also have done many for friends and family members for all occasions. There's nothing like a gift from the heart, rather than store bought items.
I love this site, and enjoy looking at all the talent displayed here throughout.
One thing i always tell people about art, its not the details of a drawing, its the creativity that expresses who you are.
Note from Kerry:
Hello dear Betsy,
Thank you for your kind words, it makes me really happy to know you like this site.
I have also been married for 27 years - time flies, doesn't it?
Thank you for your participation here, Betsy. It really gladdens my heart to know you are getting some peace from doing landscapes - you've taken to them like a duck takes to water. I am loving all that you do.
Here is a selection of links from your drawings on this site:

All eyes on you
