As an artist, teacher, web designer, and jewelry designer, Bette Ridgeway's daily life typically combines several distinct identities. However, issues of beauty, taste, color, and form infuse each endeavor in unique ways, along with the artist's lifelong delight in all things new, intriguing, and unexpected.
Inspired by her collaboration with famed Japanese fashion designer, Mihara Yasuhiro, on his 2013 women's wear collection, Ridgeway has designed her own signature scarves. Each one is inspired by a painting; capturing her transparent, light-filled style on 100% silk. The designs are creating a buzz with her many collectors.
Ridgeway enjoys working with clients to create site-specific works for both residential and commercial settings. Her highly collectible work is represented in galleries throughout the U.S. and in a part of many private and public collections including the Federal Reserve Bank, Northwestern College, and the John Deere Corporate Art Collection.
