Betsie Lombard

see me on the 2024 arts trail

I was born in Swaziland

and raised in Swaziland and South Africa. I have loved making things since forming my first rudimentary coil pots as a young child. My life has taken many twists and turns since then and after an intense professional career, I have returned to art full time. This has taken the form of painting, sculpting, ceramics, soft stone carving, mixed media and glass art. I am eternally curious and passionate about human and animal forms, nature and colour. I have called New Zealand home for more than 10 years and find my adoptive country inspirational.
