Désiré P. Betty, BArch Sci, LEED AP, the owner of Désiré Betty Designs, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the fields of architecture and the arts.
With more than 15 years of experience to her credit, Ms. Betty has earned distinction for her visionary approach to artistic expression. A practitioner of what she has dubbed “perpetual freedom art,” best exemplified by pieces that go beyond genre boundaries and encompass a variety of mediums, her work has been exhibited at various solo and group shows since 2009, appeared on the pages of several publications, and found permanent residence in the private collections of art enthusiasts around the globe. Drawing inspiration from her background in architecture, Ms. Betty has likewise taken to beautifying local communities with stunning examples of public art that feature fine detail, a dazzling array of shapes and colors, and a distinctly ethereal atmosphere. Well-regarded for her accomplishments, she was nominated for the MARTY Awards by the Mississauga Arts Council within the public art category in 2023.
Ms. Betty first studied at what is now Toronto Metropolitan University, from which she earned a Bachelor of Architectural Science in 2007. Outside of her career as an artist, she has also distinguished herself through her work as a project manager within the construction industry, most recently at the Frontier Group of Companies Inc. In this capacity, she ensures that all projects run according to budgetary restrictions, collaborates with hired contractors, and liaises with clients to ensure that construction proceeds according to their wishes. In accounting for her overall success in both project management and art, Ms. Betty credits the unequivocal encouragement and support she has received from her parents. Looking toward the future, she aspires to continue learning and expanding the scope of her career, as well as fostering a greater awareness of her art.
