Betsy Kellas is a painter, printmaker, mixed-media sculptor, and art educator who lives and works in Richmond, California. She maintains an active studio practice in both painting and printmaking and is a founding member of Just Enough Collective, a mixed-media sculpture studio and workshop also located in Richmond. Her work explores the visual and psychological impact of highly abstract images. She finds inspiration in Buddhist thought and other people’s pictures, most recently the Nouveau Realiste paintings of Alburto Burri and the line paintings of Pierrette Bloch. Her work is influenced by her early training as a printmaker and by abstract
expressionism and Dada. Ms. Kellas' work is exhibited internationally and is held in private, corporate, and public collections. She is currently represented by Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station, California, and Remarque/New Grounds Print Workshop in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
