The Exceptional Art and Life of Bette Ridgeway – Art Design Consultants


The Exceptional Art and Life of Bette Ridgeway

Posted on 11 April 2017

...Breathtaking Paintings

Bette Ridgeway is an award-winning and working artist who lives and works in Santa Fe, NM. She also happens to be a dear friend of mine. She shares her wisdom, experience, not to mention, techniques generously. I know her as a friend, mentor, and consummate professional, but her fans know her for her large, translucent poured acrylics on canvas and linen. Her exceptional technique, which she calls “layering light” results in breathtaking paintings.  

Award Winning Artist

But, don’t just take my word for it. Her work has received international recognition in recent years including Art Tour International Magazine’s Top 60 International Contemporary Masters 2017, the Oxford University Prize at the Chianciano Museum’s Art of the Mind Exhibition in Tuscany and the DaVinci Prize in Rome in 2016.

An Artist's Career Insights

And on Saturday, Bette will explore the question: What does it take to be a successful artist? As the author of Talent is Just the Beginning, Ridgeway works with artists to achieve measurable results in their art business, generate long-term goals that focus on income-generating options, and organizing two complimentary functions – the studio and the office. The goal is to understand and refine our marketing and business strategies. As both an artist and a business coach, Bette will provide valuable insights that only an artist can. 

I hope you can join us, Bette, me, and an extraordinary line of speakers at our Success Summit. If you want to learn more or register, click here now.
