about Betty

 

Born in Riga, Latvia.

Lives in Zikhron Ya`aqov, Israel.

 

Betty paints with oil, acrylic and aquarelle in a meticulous realistic style of painting,

tending from time to time to become abstract, inspired by the surrounding nature.

Her paintings combine color and texture to create a rhythm of form and contents.

Betty was sailing with her husband for many years, and in each country learn local art,

but especially her paintings being influenced by  very transparent light and strong energy that she fill in Israel.

 

"In my paintings, I am not exactly sketching the subject that I see.

I paint what appears behind the husk of external form and show the essence of the matter.

I try to capture the feel, the very aroma of such ephemeral things, as the light and atmosphere

of landscapes and the present of something beautiful that only God can create.

I want to motivate people whose daily lives are enmeshed in complexities of the modern world,

to stop for a moment and recall the purity and gentleness of nature, to enjoy the silence of it all".
