About lori

I studied at the University of Texas in Austin in studio art and while there I was awarded an artist in residency grant at the Shigaraki Institute in Japan for a year. After that I traveled and studied with as many different instructors around the world with the goal to learn from each of them something unique. I studied in Greece with artist Alan Bain and in Cortona, Italy with artist Alex Deya. I came back to the United States in 1995 after years of studying and working in different part of the world and decided I was ready to open my own studio and gallery and to immerse myself in the process. Betz Art Gallery and Studio and was located in the Heart of Downtown Houston, Texas for 15 years and during that time I participated in many solo and group exhibitions and also created several small and large scale sculptures for public and private collections. I have collaborated with several renowned dancers to pose for me and be my inspiration. The sculpture “Swan Dance” was created with the help of Stanton Walsh, the creative director of the Houston Ballet and two of his soloists. In 2012 I decided to dedicate myself solely to my own work with a concentration on sculpture and opened Betz Art Foundry.. I have spent 25 years working exclusively in developing my talents as an artist and have displayed my art in both national and international venues. I have created numerous public sculptures including , two life sized “Angels Remembered” for a family memorial and a 6 foot “Cypress Tree Cross with Hummingbirds , Liliies and a Cat”, “ The Workers Monument”for the Chamber of Commerce in Pearland and the 7 foot “Battle Cross” and “World” Sculptures for the Veterans Memorial Park in Tampa, Florida, just to name a few of my public sculptures. I have also been commissioned to create several life sized busts for the CEO’s of major companies here in Houston, Texas. In the fall of 2015 I created the sculptures of the founders of Houston, “The Allen Brothers”, which are permanently install in front of Houston’s City Hall.
