Throughout 50 years of marriage, a shared love for art and for New Mexico has patterned Ken’s and Betty’s life and work. Both worked in the Popular Dry Good’s display department in El Paso, Texas. After marrying and starting a family, they established “The Ink Well,” a silk-screening business. Later, Ken became ”The Village Cabinetmaker” in Cloudcroft, New Mexico. Betty began teaching and integrated art into her curriculum. Now retired, they devote much of their time to creating art. Ken paints in oil, while Betty enjoys pastels, watercolor, and fiber arts.
Ken, from Texas and Betty, a New Yorker, made the “Land of Enchantment” their home and are deeply connected to its history, culture, and natural beauty. For this reason, Ken and Betty now present their art in “O Fair New Mexico.”
