Updated: Apr 14, 2023

I delighted to invite you to the first Konrad Fine Art show in San Diego! 

After having two shows in New York City, I’m elated to have one here at home.I welcome you to visit my website and you can also read my artist statement below.

The art 🖼 show will be on Friday, May 12 at a great location in the heart of La Jolla:

Dunia‘s Hair Lounge

1110 Torrey Pines Rd, Suite E

San Diego, CA 92103

I am excited about this new artists’ collaboration between the extremely talented hair artist Dunia Diaz and myself. Her beautiful salon is now my resident art gallery. (Please feel free to stop by)

Artist statement My name is Betsy and I’m a self taught artist that lives in San Diego. I am a passionate person who used to work in Washington, DC in foreign policy and national security. Due to a degenerative neuromuscular disease I had to medically retire (it’s progressive), but it also led me to open my heart and soul to find my passion and a gift for painting. Now, I’m a full time abstract artist.  When people see my art and love it, there isn’t a better feeling. To share my passion and creation with others fills my soul. One of the greatest joys is to watch people’s’ reaction to my artwork - when a piece “speaks” to someone or triggers an emotional response, I know they have to have it no matter what. When I start a painting I have no idea what’s going to come out. I take a deep breathe, let go and out comes a part of my heart and soul. It’s only as the paint and my brush flow that I find the direction I’m heading - which definitely goes with my wanderlust personality. I always loved to travel and have been to a lot places around the world, and always found that my best adventures and experiences were when I was “lost or didn’t have a plan.” The act of creating is not only special, it is a privilege because it’s a way to communicate and connect with friends and strangers that I never dreamed possible.
