Betty Usdan-Zwickler has explored many mediums in her almost 40-year career as an abstract artist--painting, textile design, stone and wood sculpting, printmaking, collage and photography.  She considers her fiber creations ‘Painting with Fiber.’ Her passion for color, texture and textiles are evident in her mixed media collage and fiber artworks.

A patron recently stated, “...The depth of Betty’s life experiences is unmistakable in her art. I visited her website,, and was both delighted and moved. Each piece or series of pieces is visually distinctive, but no matter what medium she employs, there is a consistent richness of texture, vibrancy of color and fluidity of shape…a most prolific artist.”

Usdan-Zwickler holds a B.S. Degree from New York University, studied Textile Design at Fashion Institute of Technology, painting at Parsons School of Design and collage at the Art Students League.  Also, she was an artist-in-residence at Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT. Born in New York, Betty relocated to Florida in 1975 and now divides her time between New York and Florida. 

Currently, Betty is a juried member of the following prestigious art organizations: The National Association of Women Artists NYC, FL Chapter (past Vice-President), and NAWAMA, Textile Study Group of New York, ArtCenter Alumna, South Beach, South Florida Fiber Group, and WITVA-Women in the Visual Arts. She was a Signature Member of The Artists’ Guild of the Boca Raton Museum, Palm Beach County, formerly past Board Member and Treasurer of 2+3: The Artists’ Organization, Ft. Lauderdale and past Board Member Miami Women’s Caucus for Art.
