Modern American Folk Art (10 pieces)

Kansas native Betsy Walton works with a spontaneous approach and few expectations of specific results. She rarely sketches before diving into a painting, in the belief that the image formed through the painting process is rich, revealing, and vital. Many of her paintings explore the tension and balance between the mysterious nature of our existence and the objects and environments we find in everyday life. Walton’s range of influences include Byzantine icon paintings, American folk art, geometric abstraction, and the work of many contemporary illustrators and painters. She currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
