Artist Betsy Eby finds inspiration in the natural world. Her abstract paintings incorporate a luminous palette and subtly reference wildflowers, flowing water, migratory birds patterns, frost covered leaves, and misty forests. A lifelong pianist, Eby’s brush strokes have a cadence and rhythm reminiscent of musical compositions and classical sonatas. By employing pigmented beeswax in her paintings, Eby slowly builds up the surfaces of her canvases, creating depth and texture that heighten the organic quality of her work.
Betsy Eby has been exhibited widely across the United States and her works are held in the collections of the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA, the Columbus Museum, Columbus, GA, the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, GA, and several United States Embassies around the world. Eby splits her time between Georgia and Maine, where she holds studios with her husband and painter Bo Bartlett.
