Bio – Bets

Bets Holland Lundeen – Biography

Bets Holland Lundeen is a native of Norman, OK. Her first experiences in art were early childhood drawings, but her skill in capturing emotions in her art was born from her extensive experiences as an actress, choreographer and dance teacher.

Bets finds that there is a similarity in the process of tapping creative emotion, whether it be designing patterns and dance steps as a choreographer, creating a character for a dramatic performance, manipulating the clay when developing a sculpture, or observing the character of the subject for an oil portrait. She feels that there is a constant thread which connects the various arts. Her goal as an artist is to weave this thread through the soul of the observer.

Since her days as a young woman traveling throughout Europe and studying with different teachers, Bets has become proficient in her various techniques and has gained national attention through exhibitions from Beverly Hills to New York City. Having been a professional sculptor for over 30 years, she has recently been concentrating her career focus on oil portraits and paintings.

B Terminal

I stop everytime and admire! B

By the train stop and there is another sculpture of Jeppeson (sp?) in the terminal. Total of 2 (I still got 2 George). And a trivia question back... Where is the DC version of this guy located? BTW - I dust him off for you occasionally - that white patina shows dust easily.

Mr. Lundeen was just starting to work on this project when I visited his studio last August. Wow! Fast work!

Jack Swigert, a fromer Denver native, greets you when you step off the airport train at the B gates. The beautiful bronze of Elrey Borge Jeppesen, in is in the main concourse. I haven't visited all of the bars at DIA, so Mark may have one or two of loose characters in dark corners.

If you move the sculpture, you'll find my Son's driver's license. He thought it would be a good idea to mark he was there to install it.

2 pieces

I look for this every time I fly United! ❤️

You’re not allowed to climb on that statue like that now! Happy 4th from DC!

Kinda looks like your Dad

Just saw one like that in Denver Airport terminal B. A couple weeks ago.

Just WOW !

Wow, George Lundeen, you clean up good! I am constantly amazed with your sculptures. Enjoy the 4th.

I recognize the guy on the right as my partner in league play at Marianna Butte, where we lapped the field on Wednesday nights. The guy on the left use to do Chevy truck adds.
