Betsy Olmsted is the woman behind her namesake brand know for its nature inspired prints and imaginative color. With a childhood dream of becoming a naturalist, Betsy has always adored animals and possessed an intrinsic fascination with the natural world, collecting specimens which have become subjects in her art. Through her travels and study, Betsy learned to value objects of meaning: art, culture, antiques, and, most notably, textiles. A passion for creatures and flora, hues and patterns, artistic expression and material culture form the foundation for her company.
Our exclusive prints begin as works on paper, hand painted by Betsy using watercolor, gouache, and ink.
Nestled in a historic Victorian horse stable in Saratoga Springs NY, our studio is where ideas come to life, planning takes place, and designs become reality.
