Betsy Holster received her undergraduate degree in art from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, her Masters degree in art from Northern Michigan University, and her MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from Goddard College. Betsy started teaching at CSUF in fall of 2005. She has worked in a variety of media, involving a wide range of book forms. Betsy’s work centers on the ecosystem and physical environment that she finds herself in. Before moving to southern California, this ecosystem was the Lake Superior Watershed. She is beginning to take a more global approach in her artwork.

Betsy teaches Art 441 and Art 442, classes that prepare artists to teach in the public schools. She also teaches Artists Books (Art 348, 448, 548), and papermaking (Art 330, 485).
