Tales of Enchantment, Magic Unfolds
“Creating art is a means to return to the looking glass and reenter the garden where flowers whisper and birds can talk. As my beaded characters emerge they carry with them tales from the other side of the mirror. I am grateful for the joy and astonishment experienced through this journey.”
At a young age, Betsy Youngquist was introduced to the Northwest United States and Western Canada, introducing her to First Nations, American Indian and Intuit artwork & people. These early encounters influenced her love of beads and her respect for mythological and spiritual understandings through art.
