Whilst not a part of the central work of BEtter Consulting, the Principal, Barbara Etter APM, also creates paintings in artist quality acrylic, Scratchboard and pastels. She particularly likes to paint animals in pastels and has undertaken numerous pet portraits, particularly of dogs, for friends and family. She has recently undertaken human portraits.

Barbara is a keen animal lover, having spent 4 years on the Board of the WA RSPCA.

A sample of Barbara’s works are below. Please contact Barbara if you are interested in having a pet portrait in pastels done from photos (see below). Please note that such work will only be undertaken as workloads and priorities permit.

I am currently trying to transform this current hobby into a small business. See my gallery at  Various works are also on sale at Australia's largest online gallery, Bluethumb. See
