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.

God what they do and how they do it is truly amazing. They can build a sculpture the size of your house with more accuracy than you’ve ever seen on any human face or stature. That’s why my uncle Nels is so much fun because not just because he loves his aviator glasses, but he’s so dedicated to his family.

I viewed the show the other day and as always I was impressed. Bets your paintings are lovely. All the statues are beautiful. Mark your Aces and Eights I love. Guys as always just great.

Thanks for sharing that awesome exhibit!

Enjoyed the Artist Reception and happy to hear this will be on display until end of year. Meeting with five old friends in October and The MONA is on our list of places to see. This makes it extra special!

Amazingly beautiful work!!!

Amazing ❤

Spectacular

Hopefully, we’ll get back before the end of the year ... ❤️

Marty McCune, next time I'm home we need to see the exhibit.

👌

Nancy Weber....I promise I will come to town to see this!!!!
