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.

In 2015, ten sculptors were honored to be commissioned, by entrepreneur and philanthropist Joe Ricketts, to create the 14 Stations of the Cross for the Cloisters on the Platte. These bronze figures consist of some of the largest and most complex representations of the Stations of the Cross in the world today. They are open to the public and are located in Gretna, Nebraska at the Cloisters on the Platte Retreat Center.

Each station is now available for individual sale or as a set of Fourteen, at 1/4 lifesize, 1/2 life size, and larger than lifesize.

Visit www.stationsofthecross.com and www.cloistersontheplatte.com for more information on the Stations of the Cross and the Cloisters on the Platte.
