Betty Jo Costanzo

Seattle, WA

"Video and Painting: Sound, Wind, Water, Color and Light ... shifting, always in motion"
Betty Jo Costanzo’s award winning art has been described as “getting lost with a purpose” and “what a place would be like if you belonged there.” She says her influences are multi-faceted and spans many art disciplines. The late and great Jay Defeo, her longtime mentor and friend, continues to be the most significant influence. And now, Ms Costanzo reveals that for more than a decade her true inspiration is being on the land or in the water of our magnificent planet and her oceans.
Betty Jo’s works are held in corporate, private and public collections around the world and her public exhibitions and residencies span four decades both regionally and internationally. She’s lived in São Paulo, Brazil and on both coasts of the United States. The former associate professor at California College of the Arts has also worked and taught around the world, including England, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and Cyprus. She now maintains a full-time studio practice based in Seattle, Washington.
Her latest LIVING OCEANS series is a call to action for all who love the beauty of our planet Earth. These oil paintings, often quite large, have been in process since mid 2018. She is now working from the video footage of the Humpback Whales she filmed in the waters off Maui as well as her experience in October of 2019 swimming and filming these gentle giants in the protected waters of Tonga.
