Betty Jia was born in Qingdao, Shandong, where her family produced three generations of creative paintings. Her grandfather, Mr. Jia Qingqing, is well known for Chinese oil painting in 1960s. Betty’s passion started at an early age, while observing her uncle, Mr. Jia Bo, who is known for oil painting and art education, and her father, Mr. Jia Ke, who is renowned for traditional Chinese painting.

Being an admirer of her family, Betty started to learn pencil sketch and painting skills. As her interest grew, she attended many art contests, exhibitions, and ceremonies, where she got plenty of recognition and rewards. Before immigrating to the U.S. with her family, Betty received admission letters from top tier art academies such as China Central Academy of Fine Arts and Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. Not wanting to give up her passion and family tradition, she took advanced art studies in Yale University and founded Betty Art Studio. As a fine arts teacher, Betty primarily focuses on pencil sketching, oil painting, and acrylic painting.
