About Betsy:


Having grown up in an artistic family, Betsy Carter was creatively impacted starting at a young age. Her father, Stephen Shelby, is a well-known metalsmith in Fort Wayne and has his works all over the country. His influence helped encourage her through her own aspirations of earning a bachelor’s degree in art with a concentration in sculpture at the University of Saint Francis. In her earlier years, she assisted her father in his creations which helped her hone in on her own sculptural skills. Not having easy access to the tools for sculpture, Betsy started back into more two-dimensional works, with a better understanding of the three-dimensional form, she realized that she had a much better understanding of drawing and painting and techniques that come with it.


During her senior year at Saint Francis, she interned with well known Fort Wayne artist, Audrey Riley. Audrey Riley introduced her and instructed her in the world of mixed media. This influenced Betsy’s art greatly. Through wood burning, paint, colored pencil, ink, and graphite, she was able to create depth and interest that has continued even through her more current works.


Through the years Betsy has worked on commissioned works, volunteered as the children’s art instructor at the Renaissance in Roanoke, worked on design at a small wholesale decoration company, and is currently instructing acrylic painting class at the Jackson Lehman YMCA and hopes to continue her growth as an instructor at the the Rhapsody art Gallery in Fort Wayne.
