Betsy's inspirations are driven by the concept of localism. She loves funny suburban rodents, garden creatures, farms, and domestic animals as well as a good mix of weeds and flowers. Visiting local farmers' markets and flea, country craft, and antique shows are great places to find new ideas and develop vibrant color stories. Her two sons are a constant inspiration and loves that her self-driven, creative career allows her the freedom to spend time with them.
