Betty Porter (June 11, 1929 - present) was inspired to become a mini-landscape artist when she saw a tiny 1.5”x .5” framed painting on an ivory piano key. Ever since, Porter has done oil paintings in the same style. Her work consists mostly of landscapes such as trees, lighthouses, barns, and snowy hills.
