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.

I love their work. The family sculpts and it is so great to see them start with the clay.

I never thought about how they get moved to their location but I do remember when Promise of the Prairie arrived at the park. Guess there was a crane then too.

That’s some powerful equipment

This is a busy week at Lundeen Sculpture as the crew gets multiple life-size and monumental sculptures ready to be shipped to the Scheels in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Fun fact: only the mountain biker gets to ride down the highway standing up on the flatbed truck. The other monumental sculptures have to be laid down for their trip to Nebraska.
