She is Immediate Past President of the Calgary Sketch Club and a member of CARFAC Alberta. Her paintings are in private collections in Canada and the United States. “The real focus of my artwork is the portrayal of music celebrity. It is my passion to examine the persona of the major recording artist through my visual medium and I have created many illustrations in celebration of them. Each album may include portraiture, still life, landscapes and other genres as I tell narrative stories to both reflect what I consider the true personalities of the artists, as well as perhaps bring an entirely new perspective to their story.” – Bethany Vanderputten Past memberships: The Recording Academy, GMA Canada, Graphic Artists Guild, Calgary Community Painters Society, Portrait Society of America.
