Betty Dean

There is joy in creation. I respond to what I see, feel, and want to share.

Most often, my work focuses on nature, which, to me, always has a component of magic, an almost supernatural coming together in ways that surprise and amaze me. The coming together of colours, lines, shapes and light in the natural world captures my imagination. I see the intricacy of petals, the power of trees, the energy in the sky, and am driven to render the beauty of what I see and how I see it.

Like artists of the past, I use a variety of materials and processes in each piece. There is room for watercolours, acrylics, pastels and crayons, inks and stains, sometimes combined and sometimes in their pure form. The subject matter inspires my choices. My process includes play and experimentation, each time allowing space for magic to insert itself and providing opportunities for me to learn and to reveal. I respond to what I see and what I want to share.

There is joy in creation.
