Brad Betts has been an artist for over 20 years and has sold his coastal seascapes and maritime paintings internationally. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maine and is a juried Signature Member of the American Society of Marine Artists. Brad’s paintings have appeared in solo and group shows throughout New England, including the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport’s acclaimed “International Marine Art Exhibition” for the past six years. In 2006 Brad received the Maritime Gallery Yachting Award and in 2008 was recognized as one of “Four Distinguished Artists” at the Maritime Gallery.
Brad’s paintings reflect his appreciation of the sea. His work is filled with movement: Schooners under full sail battle through wind-driven seas and Friendship sloops glide through the calm waters of Maine’s inlets. The classic Betts oil is a summer day in Maine - blue skies, billowing sails and shimmering seas.
