She is a graduate of the College of Fine Arts, Sydney, where she completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2004, majoring in painting and drawing. Her art has been exhibited across Australia and in 2013 she was selected to design artworks for projection onto iconic national buildings in Canberra for the ENLIGHTEN Festival.
Consciousness and states of mind are central to Betty Holdsworth’s practice. The series of animations in Mind Trips, Mindful Skips are a continuation of the abstract paintings and illustrations from her earlier body of work, State of Mind. Mind Trips, Mindful Skips reveal the inner workings of consciousness, capturing the momentary flashes of colour and pattern travelling across the artist’s ‘mind’s eye’.
