Betsey Hurd received her
BFA, cum laude, from the University of
Montana, Missoula in 1984, with
concentrations in ceramics and drawing.
All my life, I've been a horsey girl
and have gotten to do just about
everything on horseback, from foxhunting
in Virginia to trailing cows in the
Missouri Breaks of Montana, showing
jumpers to starting colts. As a painter
and sculptor my strength comes from
depicting what I know; horses and cows,
sheep, dogs — all the four-leggeds that
I live with, and observe.
