Betta Inman is a Utah native who began painting in 2001. She was inspired by her teacher and mentor, Donna Parsons, to paint still-life. She immediately connected to the canvas. During the early stages of her calling her work was recognized as Best of Show at the Utah State Fair. Since then her work has been featured in juried art shows and has won awards in exhibitions sponsored by the Intermountain Society of Artists (ISA) and Bountiful Davis Art Center (BDAC). Painting is Betta’s passion. Her paintings show a keen interest in nature and cooking, with many floral and fresh fruits and vegetable themed works. She employs a loose style; her transition from subtle to bold colors and strokes create a balance that is interesting and inviting.
