Betsy Schott has lived in St. Petersburg, Florida since the age of 9. From an early age she realized a love of drawing. At the age of 12, she took her first oil painting class and has been studying and painting ever since.
After high school, she studied commercial art and got a job in an advertising agency. Upon getting married and having a daughter, she began working for herself doing freelance work.
As time went by she began painting clothing that she made which eventually developed into owning and managing a silkscreen tee shirt company, formally knows as Betsy & Company.
During that time she was selected as small business person of the year in her community.
In the meantime, another love surfaced and she began studying and practicing Yoga. She teaches yoga full time and it was on one of her visits to an Ashram where she was asked to paint some Hindu Deities.
A short time later she decided to continue the Deity paintings and make them available to the public.
Betsy in her own words:
I am an artist from Tampa bay who’s lived in Florida for most of my life. For the first time, I am introducing my art on my site. I have loved Painting from an early age and enjoy oils, watercolor and acrylics as mediums.
I specialize in all types of art including FAUX FINISHES, MURALS, PORTRAITS, STILL LIFE and CUSTOM DESIGNS.
