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.

Merry Christmas all! 🎄

A Merry Christmas to you all!

This Friday has a very different feel to it than last Friday. The last of our snow from the past weekend is slowly melting. The ash that fell from the sky is being blown on and rinsed away from the melting snow. The fires just west of our studio/gallery are still smoking slightly, but fire activity has been minimal this week. We've been able to see blue skies for the first time in months. Our coworkers, friends and family are heading back to their homes after evacuations, and a few are beginning to rebuild after losing it all. We are still so grateful for the hard work of our firefighters and first responders who bravely protect our communities. THANK YOU!

The Perkins are one of the most happy, active and lively couples you'll ever meet. Last year, we had the honor of creating a life-sized sculpture of Jan and Chuck. We did our best to capture their unique personalities just perfectly. After creating the life-sized version, we made them this table-top sized sculpture too. ... See MoreSee Less
