Through Her Eyes, a book about Betty's art and life . . .
Just published, Through Her Eyes is a book about Portland painter Betty Chilstrom, who chronicled Portland's historic homes, architecture, and cityscapes from 1955 to 1995. Compiled by her daughter, Robin, this is an image-rich story of her life, her art, and how she came to create a stunning, painterly archive of Portland neighborhoods before urban renewal swept through the city. It is now available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and through other booksellers. Below are spreads from the book . . . enjoy!
