Lori Betz has 25 years of art experience as a professional artist, as well as a portfolio of varied accomplishments including public art commissions, solo exhibitions, and academic achievements. She studied studio art and design at the University of Texas, Austin and was then awarded an artist’s residency at the Shigaraki Cultural Institute, in Shigaraki, Japan. After completing her residency she sought out instructors to study with and this led her to apprentice with artist Alan Bain in Procopia, Greece and then on to study sculpture with artist Alex Deya in Cortona, Italy, and portraiture with renown portrait artist, Philippe Faraut in New York.
Betz returned to the U.S. after studying abroad and opened up her own studio and art gallery downtown Houston, Texas. In 2012 Lori Betz and her partner, Frank Clegg, opened up Betz Art foundry, which is a boutique art foundry specializing in casting fine art for architects, designers, and artists as well as original designs by artist, Lori Betz. The foundry grew quickly and to accommodate the growing business they moved the foundry north of the city to Porter, Texas.
She also teaches portraiture and figurative sculpture at the Glade Arts Foundation and at Mother Dog Studios in Houston, Texas.
