I hope that you will take your time and visit the media and subject categories shown above. Then I hope that you will visit my studio located in The Torpedo Factory Art Center in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. The Torpedo Factory Art Center is open 59 hours a week, every day of the year (except for 5 holidays). The Factory hours are 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.* We also are open every Thursday until 9 p.m. The TFAC is FREE to the public. Visitors may go into the studios and observe, ask questions, and purchase original art.

* NOTE: The Torpedo Factory will close earlier at 5pm when the building is rented for a private event.
Inquire by calling the TFAC office at 703-838-4565 Ext. #1 or go to

Studio 17 is a working-artist studio, not a shop. Good news! I am happy to say that I now share the studio with Marilynn Spindler. My days to work are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Her days to work are Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays. We are off Wednesdays. Please email or call to make sure that I am going to be in the studio if you are planning a trip specifically to see me. "I am willing to come in earlier or stay later for your convenience and I am happy to come in on a day that better fits your schedule. Please do not hesitate to call or email me for an appointment." ~ Betty
