The Betsy Olmsted design studio specializes in exuberantly colored textile wares printed to look hand painted. Both lighthearted and sophisticated, her illustrative prints are made possible the by use of cutting edge and eco friendly digital printing technologies. Each design is hand painted by Betsy in her studio using watercolor, dyes, and gouache. Betsy transforms her traditional hand into contemporary imagery by using unexpected, vibrant colors and whimsical subject matter that reflect her pastoral upbringing.
