Betsy Youngquist’s mixed media beadwork reflects a fascination with the intersection of humans, animals, and mythology. Stemming from a life-long love of all creatures great and small, Betsy’s work weaves together the human and animal spirit through a surrealistic lens.
Over the past dozen years, Youngquist has exhibited her work at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington, D.C., the VIDA Museum in Borgholm, Sweden and most recently, Betsy and Scott completed an installation project for the Racine Art Museum in Racine, WI.
