These eyes are so beautiful! The attention to detail by Betsy is unmatchable. I’m so happy I wandered in the shop while I was in New Orleans a few years ago and recently purchased. My first order of eyes was stolen, but luckily Betsy was more than gracious to work with me on a replacement strategy. Thanks so much Betsy! I hope I can purchase another piece soon. I love how they match with the other colorful pieces on my wall :)

My First Drawing
After 20 years of working with beads as an artist I decided to open an Etsy shop. Etsy allows me to reach out to the planet. It's a good thing.
When I was a little over one year of age my mother accidentally left a marker uncapped. I grabbed the marker and started drawing on a marble table in our home when my mom wasn't looking. Apparently there was something aesthetically pleasing about my scribbles. That's when this crazy life of being an artist started. It's a journey I continue to this day at age 49. Often filled with doubt at my life choice, I have to remember that the early child in me knew what I was here to do.....
Betsy Youngquist started applying beads to the surface of her watercolor paintings over twenty years ago. Today the artist is nationally and internationally recognized for her innovative sculptural mosaics using beads.
Scott Long sculpts many of the underlying forms in Betsy's art. Betsy and Scott have worked on and off as a creative team for over 15 years. Scott received his BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in Milwaukee, WI in the early 1990's.
R. Scott Long
R. Scott long works in partnership with Betsy in creating the substructures she beads. The Little King of the Jungle was hand carved by Scott.
My work can be seen locally and internationally in museums and galleries. I also travel throughout the United States exhibiting at fine art and craft shows.
