The Sephardi artist Bettina Caro was born in Casablanca and now works in a studio in Hampstead, north London. Her evocative paintings capture the light and vibrancy of her North African childhood and she brings all the intensity, passion and richness of Sephardi life into her works.
Her powerful portraits and still lifes honour and preserve a lost culture. Bettina’s exhibitions, public works and private commissions alike reveal her deep connection to the past – Jewish heritage celebrated in Jewish art.
Bettina paints on canvas and board, using oils to create rich tones, acrylics for their intensity, watercolours for their delicacy and gold leaf to add that transformative touch of Mediterranean sunlight.
