Pastels - Portraits & Figures

My work comments about relationships and social responsibility, and often explores connections and how we communicate, accept, constrain, or reject these connections to form relationships. I explore nuances of social mores that weaken women, create victims and hierarchies.

Loving to paint and draw people and situations, I often create studies from life and explore watercolor, acrylic, pastel, oil pastel, ink, colored pencil, and use a variety of papers, boards, fabric, and canvas. I’ve been making art for as long as I can remember, and teaching it for about twenty-five years. There is still so much to learn and I love the challenge. I welcome suggestions and thoughts, and appreciate being able to share with other artists.

"Exceptional talent and imagination...Betzer's portraits, at first glance, appear to be realistic portrayals of a subject's features, but on closer inspection there emerges a surrealistic subtext..." LA Times

Cindy, you have incredible talent and great development of your skills. I love your pioneer spirit. I also love how you are not afraid to experiment. That Female Energy is really interesting in its interpretation as well.
