Biography

Born and raised in Minnesota, Betsy’s life in illustration has been encouraged since a very young age. Her crazy-drawing habits lead her to Brooklyn, NY, where she graduated from Pratt Institute in 2014.

Betsy began her career as a freelance illustrator in 2011 with the successful Kickstarter game the Miskatonic School for Girls. She has since gone on to illustrate book covers starting with Diana Wynne Jones's The Island of Cheldea, and Naomi Shihab Nye's The Turtle of Oman. Betsy has also had her sequential art published in Marvel's recent New York Times Bestselling anthology Out of the Past for the ever popular TV show Once Upon a Time. Her sequential art has also appeared in New York Times Bestselling author Frank Beddor's Hatter Madigan series.

February of 2012, she launched a watercolored web comic called Boys with Wings, which still continues to this day. You can check it out below.
