about betsey, fox & bear

Hi! Nice to meet you. I live in a little apartment on the north shore of Massachusetts that looks like a treehouse. I draw inspiration from the animals, plants and people that live here.

I love to make things. Painting signs, making cards, and printing on shirts are some of my favorite things.

In addition to making art, I teach an integrated art and science program to young children. I've taught an array of ages and content, developed an after-school maker program, and love to trade skills with others. Wanna share?

The name, "fox and bear prints" honors two dogs, Nina and Sadie! Nina is a sheltie mix who loves to eat anything you're eating and do simple acrobatic tricks. She looks like a fox when her ears stand up. Sadie was a sweet golden retriever who loved to roll in the grass. I always thought she looked a little like a polar bear.

Dogs are some of my best inspiration. They take me for walks twice a day, clean the kitchen floor and love everyone unconditionally. Together, we scout birds and small mammals, watch the sun rise and trace the seasons as they come and go.
