Greetings, ladies and gentlemen! Bros and ladybros!

LET'S HAVE FUN. It's me Agnes, aka Betty Turbo, your ambassador from the land of unapologetic enthusiasm, here with paper and fabric objects saturated with the sweetest and geekiest wishes for JOY and TASTY THINGS, for rad folks of all ages.

I was born & raised in Alaska, which gave me deep love for snow, wild animals, and storytelling. Both my parents are very artistic and crafty and I feel mega lucky to have grown up in an environment so supportive of MAKING STUFF. As a teenager, I lived in Portugal for a year and was inspired by many delicious pastries and cheeses.

As a teenager, I lived in Portugal for a year and was inspired by many delicious pastries and cheeses. I received a BFA in fine art photography from RIT, where I quoted Andrew W.K. in my commencement speech. After college, the art spirits of the universe called me to Nashville, where I spent three years in letterpress heaven at Hatch Show Print. Following my stint as a typesetting tornado, I spent a few years decorating cakes, but here's some real talk for you: I don't even like to eat cake anymore. I'd rather draw it.

These days, I can be found in Oregon. I love custom requests! Especially portraits and hand-lettering. For wholesale and press inquiries, please email agnesbartonsabo[at!]gmail.com

My main headquarters on the interwebs is bettyturbo.com

You can also find me on twitter, facebook, instagram, and flickr if you wish to cross all the streams!
