Betsy Miller is a Cobourg artist who is also a member of the Spirit of the Hills, a Northumberland Art Group. She has a selection of abstract paintings on display at the Campbellford Library that are well worth the while to see and enjoy.
As a photographer and graphic designer, Betsy’s work has a great affinity because of her striking colours and dramatic design and composition sense. There is a vibrancy in her works that is appropriate to the subject and tells her artistic tales with poetic directness.
See her Ski Country and Horizon Blaze where the active hues convey an instant snap click of the scene. And yet there is wryness and humor in Postit while both Native and Transit provide luscious curves and lines of attraction that any photographer would love to trace in their own images.
