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.

Barbara Kern Bush

KernBush- CarolBorn and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Barbara has been painting professionally since 1999. She is a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, and a signature member of the Pastel Society of America.

Barbara considers her specialty the human form. Although she is known for her portraits, she demonstrates an innate sense of empathy and an ability to capture the mood and emotional state of her subject, going beneath and beyond the likeness of a person. Her paintings of people often are appreciated beyond portraiture as statements of the human condition.

Ian Postley

Ian Postley_1~websiteI’m an Illustrator/designer. Like many illustrators/designers, I often face an urge every day to cry underneath my desk; I’m not sure why. I seek to compose my ideas in mediums other than my thoughts, for conception is only one half the battle.  With each design, I embark, I flesh out each of my concepts with the intention of breathing new life into a once dated concept. Finding the ability to overcome and progress, to me, is the true artist’s way; or at least my way.

In the Artisan Showcase:

Nicole Maskell

Maskell- Irish~websiteI have always been creative; dabbling in everything from sketching, jewelry making, scrapbooking, floral arranging, painting, to graphic design. Over the years my jewelry making has evolved into custom accessories. I use my graphic design and other crafting experience to create personalized and themed items in a multitude of settings including fun bottle caps to men’s cuff links. I also enjoy using fabric and feathers to create fun hair accessories like boutique bows and fascinators.
