Betty Benard

Betty Benard (1935 - 2013) created art in the Creativity Explored studio for 22 years.

Benard was a very versatile artist who usually worked from memory or her imagination. She came from a large family and enjoyed depicting family gatherings, houses overflowing with people, and flowers.  Benard enjoyed working both figuratively and abstractly, including combining paints and origami paper to make bold, striking collages. Benard exhibited frequently throughout the Bay Area and also had her work included in presentations in Japan.
