Betty Salter

In the 1950s, Betty worked in the Hawkes' Bay Art Gallery and Museum, then window-dressing and signwriting before marriage and family duties. During this time, involvement in various handcrafts, including some years with pottery kept her artistic instincts ticking over.

A tertiary Graphic Design course in 1984-5 (Honours pass) began the path that led to her present life as an artist.

After moving to Nelson in 1989, a year of face-painting in 1990 led to discovering the ability to do Portraiture, which in turn opened the way to Fantasy Painting, Animal Portraiture and Landscapes.

Painting is now a passion with still occasional facepainting at parties and events.
