About Betsy Birge
Betsy is an amazing artist. She has drawn and painted and created all her life. She is native to Maine and moved to the Belfast area in the early 1980’s. In the late 1980’s she discovered the art of decorative painting, opened her own business and things mushroomed from there. She taught many people to paint through the Adult Education program in Belfast for a number of years. She takes classes whenever she can fit them into her schedule to keep feeding her creative spirit. She finds being in Waldo county helps her in that regard. There are so many creative people here and it is such a diverse and beautiful spot. The possibilities are endless!
