About

Betty for web site 001

Betty’s landscape paintings are inspired by her visual memory and essentially personal view of places she has visited. Subtle light and intense colour are contrasted to give depth and space as well as a sense of drama in her semi-abstracted vision. Her insight into the inner life of the person is strongly depicted in the portraits. (They reveal Betty’s sympathetic penetration into the character and personality of the subject).

Betty Spector won the Gwen Mandley Award for a Watercolour at the Chelsea Art Society Exhibition 2007 and an award in the NPL Art Competition 2002. Her work is in Public Collections and is collected by purchasers in the UK and USA. She is a member of the Richmond Art Society and has exhibited with the Royal Watercolour Society, Bankside Gallery and the Royal Institute of Painters in Water colour, Mall Galleries.
