betsy-hall-harrisonBetsy Hall Harrison was born in Baltimore, MD in 1954. Her art training began in early grade school with Saturdays spent at The Maryland Institute of Art. Private art lessons followed, and continued through high school. Upon graduation in 1972, Betsy traveled to Mexico to study native arts and crafts. She enrolled at The Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. After the first semester there, she received a student scholarship in ceramics, and stayed nearly four years studying all types of fine art, Mexican history, and Spanish. It was in Mexico she first learned the art of Batik from a local master. After leaving Mexico, she moved to Boise, ID to continue her art training. She graduated with honors in 1977 from Boise State University, earning a BFA in art with a metalsmith emphasis. After one year of graduate work in Boise, she returned to MD, where she was employed at a custom frame and art supply shop and taught art to 7th and 8th grade students in Baltimore. In 1980, Betsy moved permanently to Ocean City where she has her own studio and concentrates in Batik on silk. She also does watercolor house portraits by commission. Betsy is a former vice-president and board member of the Art League of OC, and offers workshops and lessons in Batik. She is also a member of the Worcester County Arts Council. Her work may be seen in several galleries on the Eastern shore, at Playa Oeste Gallery in Rincon, Puerto Rico, at local art exhibits, or by special appointment at her studio in Berlin, MD.
