Following her passion and trying to constantly channel her creativity into a stream of revenue, Betty has worked as an Interior Designer and has owned her own art galleries on the River Walk and in La Villita in downtown San Antonio, Texas. She has reinvented herself many times as the need presented itself. Betty is a person who constantly has a project that she has to bring to fruition. Currently, she is a member and collage artist at the River Art Gallery in La Villita in San Antonio where she combines water color, paper sculpture and poetry into works of art and has written and published a book in which she tells of her mother’s childhood in the Mississippi Delta. It is a romantic gothic novel based on her mother’s life.
Betty was raised in San
Antonio, Texas, attended the University of Houston and received a
Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts graduating with honors. Her interior
design work toured nationally with ASID upon her graduation.
Genealogy and history are other areas of interest for her. She is a thirteenth generation Southern woman with lineage dating back to the founding of America with ancestors at Jamestowne. Many of her ancestors were patriots who fought in the American Revolution and Civil War. Her grandfather, Lt. Col. Thomas Chisolm fought with Washington’s Continental Line and was the first Surveyor General of Georgia after the Revolution. Her great aunt, Ann Cuthbert, was the first woman to own land in Georgia, owning Mulberry Grove Plantation where George Washington was entertained on several occasions. Betty is a member of The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, The Colonial Dames of America, and The Jamestowne Society.
