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.
