Betty Battle is deeply rooted in South Carolina, born and raised in a small town. She passed the time by turning to art, turning trash to treasure and working with her hands. At five years old, she would make clothes for her dolls and art for her bedroom walls and clothing. She wrote down ideas about what she wanted to make, and would go on scavenger hunts to find her materials. She loves to make up stories about many things that make her happy. Today, nothing has changed—she’s still that little South Carolina girl, but all grown up, with a passion for art and helping others.
