Bettie Sperty is a local Virginia artist who enjoys working with a variety of mediums.
She is mostly self-taught, but has been honing her skills most of her life, watching other artists, picking up a workshop here and there, exploring techniques, styles and mediums on her own.
Over the years she has worked as a floral designer, a display person, painted custom murals in model homes, businesses and private homes, custom painted furniture and donated her time and skills for schools, senior buildings and pet rescue organizations.
Bettie’s painting style runs from fun, colorful and whimsical to the fine detail of Tromp L’oeil (photo realism). Her hand built pottery pieces are colorful and creative and showcase her attention to detail.
Through her artwork, Bettie’s hope is simply to bring a smile to a face, touch your heart or make your eyes happy.
