Betty McMullen is a full time studio artist. She maintains a studio in her home and also in a warehouse building on the West Side of Charleston. She spends her time painting both abstract and realistic paintings. Betty is an accomplished weaver, and created fine art handwoven wall hangings for many years before returning to painting. She enjoys the discipline of realistic oil painting, as well as the freedom of intuitive non-objective painting with acrylics. She travelled the world as a child, with her parents. She developed her strong sense of color from time spent in Korea, Japan and India.
