Betty Pepper makes her work from found materials; discarded books, old fabrics, forgotten papers. She breathes life and magic into these objects, creating fantastical and miniscule worlds populated with tiny animate houses and filled with their stories.
In the artist’s own words, her houses “…stand in their own little landscape telling their tale. Some are argumentative, some are sad, some are jubilant, many are simply lost. They all have a story to tell and they are hardly ever shy of talking back. The one thing they all have in common is that they are all living on the edge in some way as I think most of us do…”
Betty has exhibited her charming work in many galleries across the UK as well as internationally in Denmark, Munich, Italy and the Netherlands.
