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.

Two amazing artists! Love them.

His work is awesome

"A garden starts with planting just one seed, but when Joyce and Ed Doty retired to Kilauea, Kauaʻi, and began their garden in the 1980s, they never imagined it would grow into Na ʻAina Kai, a 240-acre botanical garden and sculpture park that is now open to the public. Nai ʻAina Kai, meaning “land by the sea,” offers visitors the chance to explore a multitude of beautiful gardens and one of the largest collections of bronze sculptures in the United States. It also includes a koi-filled lagoon, a forest of 60,000 hardwood trees, miles of trails, and a beautiful secluded white sand beach."

Take a little video tour of this magical place and see how many sculptures you can spot by the Lundeen family.

It’s a beautiful place. All the sculptures are so well placed and the Lundeen Sculptures are easy to pick out because of artistic detail and so true to life setting.

What a beautiful setting for many of your amazing works. Recognized several but lost count. Some went by too quickly. So how many are there?

I want to go and see that!

One of my favorite places

One of the few sculptures from George Lundeen that also incorporates water, "Summer Showers" depicts three groups of kids and a dog (of course!) engaged in a favorite summer activity: a water fight! ... See MoreSee Less
