Betty Franks Krause Artist Bio

Born in Toronto, Canada. Raised in San Jose, CA

I found pictures of mixed media art on the internet and FELL MADLY IN LOVE! When I started creating abstract art: about 2 years ago (Summer 2015).

It wasn’t until a few years ago that I started to really appreciate and love abstract art. I love the FEELING I get when I experience abstract art. Happiness, yumminess all mixed together…like drinking coffee and eating chocolate cake at the same time! What inspires me? EVERYTHING. It can be as complex as the world news reported or as simple as feeling the breeze on my skin. Or sometimes, it is a memory, a place I have visited, an experience, a dream.

Painting tools: I paint with acrylics (I have no patience for oil paint to dry) and many different mark making instruments such as charcoal, graphite, colored pencils, grease pencils and your good ole #2 pencil (my favorite). I love painting on different surfaces: canvas, wood, paper (watercolor, mixed media, Bristol, yupo).

And, I love scratching into the surface with toothpicks, skewers, nails, putty knives…anything sharp, but that won’t make a hole in my surface! Sharing my art journey is a part of who I am. I love to help out other artists and share anything and everything I have learned through my own journey
