Betty writes: "I am a self-taught artist whose career spans 40 years. It includes stone carving, bronze casting, aluminum and bronze fabrication, found objects and now wood. In response to corporate collectors, I traveled to Italy to execute marble commissions, and have worked with Johnson Atelier and Tallix foundries to produce sculptures for public installation. I was born in Passaic, NJ and grew up in Rutherford, NJ. At the moment I live in Morristown, NJ with my studio in Chatham, NJ.

"My career started after a back operation when I was 29 years old. In bed for one year, crossed eyed from reading and TV, I started playing with clay on a breakfast tray and was hooked! With no art training of any kind, I took a sculpture course in stone carving at the NJ Center of Visual Arts. I just took off and never looked back. Most of the sculpture I have sold has been through art consultants which now seem to be few and far between. Sculpture has become my life, working 5 days a week - 9 -4, and I'm not planning to stop any time soon."

Recently, Betty has had solo exhibitions at the Speakeasy Art Gallery in Boonton, NJ, at the Rizzo Fine Art Gallery in Chatham, and at William Paterson University's Ben Shahn Gallery. Her artwork is also included in several museum and corporate permanent collections.


Betty's studio is located at 11 Commerce St., Chatham, NJ. Visitors can view her work there.
