TAG Interview With Betty Sheinbaum

When did you first realize you were an artist (or have the courage to identify yourself as an artist)?

Around 30 years old. I had four children and could start going to art classes. I painted at home in the living room and studied art history.

For whom do you make art?

What's new with your work? Have you learned any new techniques, or faced any new challenges this past year or so?

I have been working on drawing and it is interfering with the freedom of painting what I want to express. It is difficult to become adventuresome - I haven't succeeded to my satisfaction.

How do you know when a work is finished?


Do you have a favorite painting? (Yours or somebody else's)

Many. Works by Diebenkorn and Paul Wonner.
