Betsy Halford is a mixed media artist using found objects that are recycled into unique art treasures. Betsy uses fabric, paint, glass and anything else that inspires her to create her wonderful art. Each found piece starts a journey that guides her along until the piece is complete. Some pieces speak louder than others and come together quickly, while other pieces she has to “listen” to for awhile to figure out what they are trying to say.
Betsy started gathering "treasures" as a child growing up in South Carolina. She was influenced by her parents who were both collectors of everything and incurable pack rats.
She currently lives in the Druid Hills neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and two kitties, Priscilla and Eva and a dog.
