Betty Cleeland

Betty Cleeland is an oil painter exploring patterns and schemes found in the world around us: in architecture, in nature, and especially in textiles. The uniting thread in all of the work is color and pattern and how our perception of color depends on adjacent colors. She uses color in her work as a visual construct that appears random but that in fact is based on careful study and perception. Cleeland has exhibited nationally and has work in private and public collections including Fidelity Investments and the Fisher Museum of Art in Los Angeles.
