Bettina Lesieur is a Massachusetts native who resides and displays her paintings at her gallery in Duxbury, Massachusetts. Her style is characterized as traditional, her medium oils. Featured in the gallery display is an impressive variety of landscapes, seascapes, etc., some inspired by her travels through the very countryside of Europe made famous by the work of old masters, themselves. You can also see an array of South Shore scenes as well, which easily explains the gathering of interest of Bettina’s work amongst art enthusiasts of a widening area. Her increasing awards at several prestigious juried exhibits has attracted numerous commissions from both private and corporate sectors.
Bettina’s inherent talent has played a significant role in her considerable progress in painting since she has had the distinct advantage of having both parents themselves, involved in artistic careers. They were both graduates of the Vesper George School of Art and were students of the late Henry Hensche. Her mother, the late Maria Lesieur, majored in fashion design and illustration while enjoying much success with watercolor and oil as an impressionist. This finally was capped by several years spent as an instructor at the School of Fashion Design in Boston.
Her father, Robert’s, career began with commercial art, and for some forty years as a free-lancer, spent servicing some of Boston’s prominent ad agencies as well as direct client activity. He was also an art instructor at Boston University in the field of Commercial Design. In recent years he had returned to his first love, that of painting watercolor, pastels and various treatments in black and white and was active in exhibiting his fine art in the Boston area.
