Artist's Palette

Poetry in Pastels

Bette Phillips had a life-changing experience in February 2003 when she attended a Maxine Thompson pastel portraiture weekend workshop at Woocoo Shire Hall, Maryborough. It was there that she learnt the basic techniques of using pastels.

She continues to develop those techniques which now define her as an artist worth watching.

Bette has her studio at ‘Yeltuka’ (a local Aboriginal word meaning ‘the new place’) at Antigua, 25 kilometres south-west of Maryborough in Queensland. She has carved a new place for herself, with her work easily bringing $1,200 per piece; and currently pushing up towards $2,500.
