Betsy Miller

Painting, Booth 828

 Originally from Montreal, after working for some time in the banking industry, I decided to pursue my life-long passion for design and colour. Following completion of the Fine Arts Certificate program in 2010 at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, I began to develop my unique expressionistic painting style. Based in my Cobourg studio since 2011, I specialize in highly original textured work in acrylic on canvas. Paint is applied  on the canvas using large palette knives and dripping techniques. Layering with contrasting colour creates texture and depth. Canvas staining using liquid acrylic and medium is another technique which creates rich glossy pieces. No plan is made or reference is used. My work continues to evolve in exciting new directions. Inspiration comes from many expressionists painters such as Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler and Lee Krasner to name a few. My paintings are held in private collections in Canada, London, UK, Boston and New York, USA.
