Whatever the subject captured by artist Bettie Hebert-Felder---be it a group of girls enjoying a peaceful moment on the beach, a young woman relaxing with a cup of tea in her garden, or a teenage boy and girl talking shyly after school on her front porch---one feels the contentment that permeates each of her oil paintings.
After more than 30 years as a professional artist, Felder’s deft touch brings to life shimmering moments of peacefulness that are prized by collectors throughout the country. Clients include those who specialize in acquiring Old Masters, decorators and top-ranking physicians. The tranquillity of her art as well as its beautiful reverie delight lovers of impressionism.
Embracing the happy and beautiful moments of life, Felder applies her talent to landscapes, garden scenes and portrait subjects whose features capture the viewer’s eye and heart. Her art has a timeless quality that appeals to both men and women.
Whether she is painting a rain washed garden with lush flower beds of hollyhocks and poppies, or a mother and daughter at the seashore looking out to a softly colored sunset sky, you will recognize the serenity that Felder’s art evokes.
An artist whose subjects are never static, recent paintings have included a trio of young girls having a tea party on the lawn of a Victorian home, a young woman with a flock of sheep in a field, and a mother and son in turn-of-the-century clothing picking flowers in a formal garden.
Ms. Felder’s commissions include a series of limited edition art plates for Gorham China, as well as numerous portraits for prominent Dallas families.
