Betsy Ross was born in 1943 in Columbus, Ohio and grew up in the scenic rural hills of southeastern Ohio. She spent her childhood amidst the colorful and adventure-filled comings and goings of her father's veterinary practice.
Her affection and fond remembrances of her rural Ohio childhood and idyllic charm of the Swiss mountains are the main subjects of her art and writing.
Her childhood remembrances of her pet horse "Black Beauty" are the subject of a trilogy written and illustrated by the artist. Similar to her paintings, there is a message in each of the three stories, which is sure to captivate readers of all ages.
