Welcome to the Betty Pepper website.
Betty finds inspiration for her work in stories, poems, memories, things from the past and over-hearings. In her effort to find that elusive something which makes an object desirable and somewhat 'magical' she explores different media and techniques in both two and three-dimensions.
Fabrics, the way they fade, carry scents and act as memory aids fascinate Betty. The recycling of old garments, fabric and books has become an important part of her work.
'The ways in which time changes and decays objects interests me greatly and I like the notion that all things are ephemeral and constantly in a state of deterioration. My work often deals with stories from the dim and distant past. This is why I choose to work with faded colours. I like the way they look as if they have lived a little.
