Biography: Betsy LaMere's appreciation for her equine subjects and for the art form of pen and ink drawing reflects in her work. Dots and lines flow together to create form, depth, value and texture. Images emerge through a variety of techniques including pointillism and crosshatching. The final rendering is an interpretation of realistic impressionism. As a self-taught artist, Ms. LaMere has developed a unique and very distinctive style. Betsy has owned and worked around horses for over twenty years. Her areas of interest include drafts, dressage, jumping, eventing, carriage driving and children. Her favorite subjects express the special relationship between horse and human - whether at home or at an event. The moments of friendship, rapport and teamwork are those she strives to capture on paper. Much of her inspiration comes from personal experience. It is through her own personal experiences that Betsy turned her desire to draw into a full-time commitment of portraying the animals she endears with such a passion. Her attention to detail, sensitivity of the individual and close relationship with her subjects has made Ms. LaMere's work gain recognition from colleagues and demand from collectors. Her work has been included in numerous exhibits throughout the United States and Canada, and has won many awards for excellence. Betsy currently works out her studio at home on the fourty acre farm where she resides with her family and three horses: Mi Choyce, a Quarter/Thoroughbred gelding and beloved companion of over twenty years; Lateralus, a three year old Percheron/ Thoroughbred stallion; and The Chief, a 22 year old Belgian gelding.
