Betty Ann Medeiros- artist from Danbury CT.
Over my career I have worked as a successful freelance illustrator, fine artist, and teacher. I ran my own art studio for years and taught a few painting classes at Western Connecticut State University. My illustrations have been published in several magazines, books, and even on puzzles. My work has been exhibited in art shows and galleries, where I've sold to private and institutional collectors. But I also have a love for business and Tech and have worked as a manager of an art store, a business consultant at Apple, and sales executive for a printing and graphics company, utilizing my people skills, knowledge for the latest business technologies, my sales techniques, and marketing techniques.
My creative style has been one of a realistic, colorful blend reminiscent of the traditional art of the “Golden age of Illustration”. My subject matter usually includes figures and landscapes. With a creative philosophy that brings out my feminine personality and love of bright colors while demonstrating my technical skill and ability to create exciting compositions. I enjoy watercolor, figure drawing with charcoal, pastel, and oil painting in an impressionistic style. I also love to go painting "en plein air" all around New England and painting large murals. I recently started to create computer illustrations for video game backgrounds. Can't wait to see what is next for me!
