Artist Profile: Betty Harrington

I was given my first set of oil paints in 1961 and have been painting ever since that day.  My development as an artist has moved through many stages as I multi-tasked through life as a painter, wife, mother, and student.

I took courses whenever possible and feel lucky to have met many teachers who believed in my creative potential.  My move to Rhode Island was a crucial step because Rhode Island School of Design classes demanded artistic growth.  In 1992, I fulfilled a life-long dream and graduated from Brown University at the age of 49.  After graduation, I became a full time artist and moved towards brining my unique vision as an artist to fruition.

My primary body of work is called INFIGO.  My artworks include paintings, photography, assemblage, and mixed media.  Small works of art in these areas, can be seen at HOTPOINT EMPORIUM.
