BETSY POULOS

Artist Betsy Poulos

Born and art educated in NYC, Betsy grew up with a mother as an artist and began at a very young age exploring her creative calling.  She graduated with a BA in Art Education from Queens College and studied at The Art Student League of NYC. Self-described as having happy feet, Betsy has lived in CO, WA, OR and settled in Hawaii 30 years ago.  She has owned art galleries in NY, CO  and WA as well as exhibiting her own art in over 20 galleries and juried shows including one woman shows, receiving 1st and 2nd place awards and honorable mentions. Betsy has enjoyed over 15 years of teaching art in NY and on the Big Island.  While living in Hilo she decided to further her education and obtained a MA in Expressive Arts Therapy and a M.Ed in School Counseling.

Artist’s Statement:

My art is nourished by several environments; one is the influence of my original home, New York City, where I received my formal art education.  Another is its almost exact opposite, the high country of Telluride, CO, and the mountains and coastlines of Washington State and Oregon, where I lived before moving to the Hawaiian Islands. Inspired by the urban and the wild, my expressionistic, non-objective and mixed media art strives to capture the flow and energy of life.
