Known as the "House Painter of Portland," Betty lived in the same Buckman neighborhood home for over seventy years. From 1955-1995 she chronicled historic homes, architecture, and cityscapes, creating a stunning visual archive of mid/late-century Portland, before urban renewal projects changed the city forever.
