When Betsie Met Diana

We’re two zany women who met at book club and are living our dreams! Betsie Richardson is our creative director—both oil painter and greeting card caption creator, plus a big heart and soul for days. Diana Parker is a former documentary film Impact Producer who brings an insane amount of optimism and can-do attitude for promoting Betsie’s unique brand of quirky art and humor.

We both want to put responsibly made products into the world that embrace slow living, authentic connection, and heart. So. Much. Heart.

Betsie began a serious practice of oil painting in 2013, and her greeting card line launched within a year after she took her first batch of cards to the public market in Boise and they sold out. With Diana's help, the greeting card line has expanded to retail shops across the United States and into Canada.

Watch out world, Betsie Studios is expanding into more goodies to deliver delight! We launched a line of cotton tea towels in 2023, and are having too much fun bringing Betsie's art to the kitchen and home.

We took Betsie Studios to the wholesale tradeshow world in 2023 at NY NOW and gained a ton of new retail partners!

Find Betsie at Booth #221 at *Noted+Gifted in San Francisco in April 2024.

Betsie presents an example of her oil paintings and her "why" behind creating greeting cards and tea towels. It's Betsie at her unscripted authentic best!
