Some images may look simple, but contain a dramatic effect--others are more detailed and take time to absorb the context, content, meaning, imagery, and emotions built into the picture.
Some pieces/images are composites--taking many different objects, filters, and scenes in order to combine them into a dreamlike state. Many of my pieces tell stories and are open to many different interpretations and analysis.
Currently, Betsy travels along the coastal life and land when time permits. She lives on a small farm in Southwest Virginia with four horses--two Standardbreds, two Appaloosas, one being Leopard. She rides both English and Western, having successfully competed in the past on her late horse Bobby.
Her love of photography has bloomed over the years, now showing its success with her hard work and dedication to the field. Predominantly, she can be seen wading out with her tripod and camera into the ocean to get the perfect sunrise or sunset shot; or she can be seen just walking along the coastline, waiting for the right pelican flock to pass by just over the waves in perfect tandem. She loves to capture the gracefulness and love of nature and animals, sometimes incorporating her mascot Sam McGee, the skeleton, into the portraits. Sam is a biological skeleton, with teeth from Germany, and is used to enhance and to yield an unexpected, yet interesting complements and meanings to Betsy's creations.
