Biography


Betty Argiros a native of Rockland County, New York, Betty Argiros began painting in high school, intending to pursue a career in art, but life had other plans. She moved to New York City and then to upstate New York in the 1970s where she spent several years working with and counseling troubled teenagers. However, her thoughts and ambitions were never far from the canvas, and in 2001 when she retired, she was finally able to devote herself fully to her art.
Betty works in oils, watercolors and pastels, and her landscapes are inspired by the great natural beauty of rural northeastern Pennsylvania where she now resides. She has studied oil with landscape painter Peter Fiore, and watercolor Pat Weaver. She has attended workshops with landscape painter Barbara Jaenicke in oil and pastel, Randall Saxton, and, Colley Whisson. She has also studied portraid painting with Romel de la Torre, and still lives with Qiang Huang.
Betty’s work has been displayed at local shows, including Art in the Park in Hancock, New York, and in Pennsylvania at the Inn at Starlight Lake. In March and April 2017, she is the featured artist at the ReMax Building gallery in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. You can view her work at:
