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.

Our studio finished sculpting the astronauts of Apollo XI, last summer. After taking a little publicity tour around the country, they were installed in the Moon Garden at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Right now in the studio we are working on the crew of Apollo XIII, heading to the foundry very soon.

This maquette of the Apollo 11 crew is available in two sizes, a 12" and a 20" size. Each astronaut is also available separately.

After we send the waxes to the local foundry, they return to us like this. We have some amazing people in our shop who can weld this puzzle back together and make something beautiful from these unfinished pieces. This will be Rock n’ Roll, the mountain biker, and Archer, the bow hunter. This will probably take us 2-3 months to finish these monumental sculptures. ... See MoreSee Less

I’m guessing that is the mountain biker.

Beautiful done ,another great job

Amen

The Stations of the Cross at the Cloisters on the Platte was largest, most collaborative and fastest project the Lundeen family has worked on. The Lundeen studio was busy and crowded while we worked on the Stations, as George, Mark, Bets, Anne and Joey all worked together on these sculptures. Check out this beautiful video for a little tour of the Cloisters.
