Bettina Lesieur is a Massachusetts native who resides and displays her paintings at her gallery in Duxbury, Massachusetts. Her style is characterized as traditional, her medium oils. Featured in the gallery display is an impressive variety of landscapes, seascapes, etc., some inspired by her travels through the very countryside of Europe made famous by the work of old masters, themselves. You can also see an array of South Shore, Cape Cod and the Islands scenes as well, which easily explains the gathering of interest of Bettina’s work amongst art enthusiasts of a widening area. Her increasing awards at several prestigious juried exhibits has attracted numerous commissions from both private and corporate sectors.
Bettina’s inherent talent has played a significant role in her considerable progress in painting since she had the distinct advantage of having both parents, graduates from Vesper George School of Art and were students of the late Henry Hensche, involved in artistic careers. Her mother, the late Maria Lesieur, majored in fashion design and illustration while enjoying much success with watercolor and oil as an impressionist. This was finally capped by several years spent as an instructor at the School of Fashion Design in Boston. Her father, the late Robert Lesieur, began his career with commercial art, and for some forty years as a free-lancer, he spent servicing some of Boston’s prominent ad agencies as well as direct client activity. He was also an instructor at Boston University in the field of Commercial Design.
Bettina's painting process is intuitive and from the heart. Both of Bettina's parents, fueled her passion for art. She is connected with nature, intrigued, and very aware of the environment, which is her main source of inspiration. Whether in a garden, during her global travels, or the south shore coastal area where Bettina lives, she is continually inspired to paint by the wonder of the world around. She paints what she see and is fascinated with color, form, texture-the play of light and shadow on almost anything-the randomness nature possesses. Capturing the essence of the subject is Bettina's goal.
