The Beauty of Nature, no matter where you are...

​​​Betsy Mitten Studio

Surface design, art, and classes

We long to experience the beauty, joy, and feeling of serenity that comes from surrounding ourselves with nature. Delicate spring tulips and bright crocus, a cool path in the woods, the warmth of the sand on the beach and the sounds of the waves, and the towering mountains in the distance all bring us a sense of awe, wonder, and calm.  

We can't always head to the beach for a walk, find a quiet trail in the woods to follow, spend time tending our garden, or travel to the natural places we find most rejuvenating, but we can still infuse our lives with these feelings and make meaningful connections. 

I love these places, too. I have a deep passion for art and the natural world. My passion is creating images that transport us back to these magical places so we can always have a bit of the wild. You know what brings you joy and a sense of well-being. My studio is all about bringing the joy of nature home through patterns, art, and classes. No matter where we are, we can wrap ourselves in nature and create beauty at home, while remembering our favorite places.

I'm passionate about surface design, art, and nature. I've been creating nature inspired patterns, art, and classes for over twenty years. I've added digital pattern creation to my portfolio and I can't wait to share my new patterns, art, classes, and reflections about creating a life infused with art and nature.

Love to learn? My classes are designed to help you develop your own creative voice and connect with nature. Explore my Classes section to find ideas for adults, families and children. Check out my collaboration with the world class Chicago Botanic Garden and create your own placed-based mini box collage.  I provide the lessons, a list of carefully selected art materials, and the guidance you need to be successful.
