A Client With Total Freedom

After more than 25 years on the Boston agency scene, Betsyann Duval has found new life, and art, after advertising.
Since selling her controlling stake in Duval Woglom Brueckner & Partners, the former agency principal has spent the past two years pursuing her passions: painting and printmaking.
“My imagery is primarily natural and figurative,” she said. “My art evolves through a process of intuitive exploration.” Her work so far includes a series of cityscapes and several nudes (one shown).
“I’m surprised how much marketing [of the art] is required and how it eats into the time I have to actually produce my work,” she said. “But since I’m my own client, I finally have total creative freedom.”
Duval has shown her work in national and international exhibitions, including shows held at the Studio for Color Etching in Barga, Italy; the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; and the Broome Street Gallery in New York. Her work will be exhibited next at the Angora Gallery in New York from late December to early January.
