Artist Bio

Betsy Barnum is from the San Francisco area and currently works in Seattle, WA. She earned an MFA in Printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2006. In 2007 she was one of the inaugural recipients of the OVAC Art 365 grant. In 2012 she received a residency at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts in Nebraska City. Her work consists of prints and mixed media drawings which utilize icons and gestures as expression of daily life. The repetition of symbols, quality of paper, and serial nature of images work like a narrative journal without words.
