About Betty Tureaud’s Oeuvre

Betty Tureaud’s work has been described as “dreamscapes” before and it is a very fitting title.  Her pieces are very ethereal and evoke the same kind of feelings that are associated with dreams.  She has even said that she is actually trying to make dreams and they are a huge inspiration for her.  Dreams, however, aren’t her only inspiration.  Her piece “9 Steps to Heaven” is sort of her own take on the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.  Betty does an amazing job of taking different aspects of real life and weaving them together to create wonderful dream-like experiences on Second Life <p>
