Art on Display: Betsy Finn

Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Betsy Finn has always loved creating. As a child, she loved spending afternoons in her grandfathers workshop; some afternoons were spent painting, and others were spent making creations out of wood. Betsy also discovered the magic of seeing images appear on light-sensitive paper in her high school darkroom. Today, she has her own portrait studio, located just outside Ann Arbor in Dexter.

This art exhibit is comprised of fine art photographs, and traditional artwork. The photographs on display highlight the beauty of nature and God's creation. Betsy's pastel creations are created in a free-flowing manner, a vibrant celebration of the inspiration found in the natural world. Her ink drawings are more detailed, subdued, with a focus on pen stroke technique. Regardless of the media, Betsy's goal is to create artwork that imbues a sense of appreciation and wonder for the world and people around us.

Betsy was named one of 2010's top ten photographers under the age of 30 by Professional Photographer Magazine. Her images have been featured in international exhibitions and received numerous awards - including Best of Show and Photographer of the Year. Betsy and her husband have two boys, a dog, and a cat.
