|In traveling the Napa Valley back roads, you may come upon a red-headed lady in a big straw hat,
huddled over her easel and paints, and very engrossed in capturing yet another Valley scene. That
would be me, Betty Jo March.
I have lived in, and loved, this valley for over 75 years of my life. I have recorded every nuance of
color and cloud and shade and shadow of every season, working in either water color or oil, in an
attempt to show the world the beauty I see every day. I often remember passing a beautiful field of
poppies and lupine, while in the company of my favorite High School art teacher, Ms. Marietta
Voorhees. She turned to me and said "Oh Finch! (maiden name) Don't you wish you could capture
that on canvas?" I have ..... many times, and I would like to think she would be proud of my
Although I have studied with other well-known artists and have taken a variety of classes, I consider
myself mainly self-taught, and have developed my own unique style.
I have been accepted, and taken awards, in many, very prestigious, juried shows; am a founding
member of Wine Country Artists; a member of the National League of Pen Women; and have
earned my Society of Western Artists signature.
My paintings hang in many private collections, both local and international, and have been
consistently chosen for silent auction for the famed Napa Valley Wine Auction. I was very honored
when St. Helena Hospital and Health Center bought one of my paintings to present to Rosemary
Clooney, after she performed for one of their charity fund-raisers. The Napa Valley Heritage
Foundation asked me to be one of ten artists to do paintings of the Valleys old stone bridges for
their Heritage Collection.
Presently, my art is part of Hogan Gallery, upstairs at Vintage Estates, in the beautiful little town of
Yountville, Napa Valley, Ca.. If you are ever in our neighborhood, please drop in and say
I'm there every Wednesday!!
Please wander through my site, and I hope you enjoy what I do as much as I enjoy doing it!!
