Betsy Walton _ Portland, Oregon

I am native Kansan who now calls Portland, Oregon home. I left a full time job in October, 2006 to become a painter and illustrator. Since then, I have been painting day and night, answering emails, shipping packages, and meeting fascinating new people at every turn. I am truly grateful for the support and encouragement I have received along the way.

My style is informed by a range of influences including Byzantine icon paintings, American folk art, geometric abstraction, and the work of many contemporary illustrators and painters.

I work with a spontaneous approach and few expectations of specific results. I rarely sketch preliminary drawings before diving into a painting, in the belief that the image formed through the painting process itself will be rich, revealing, and vital.
