My art is inspired by nature and rich colors. I am an artist/photographer/writer and like to see art printed on fashion.

Thanks for visiting! Color creates a mood and is the key to my art. Even when the work is abstract, it may be about nature or human nature. I also am a photographer. My work is about trying to understand the nature of the world.

You can find my work on all the Redbubble products such as prints for the wall, dresses, shirts, scarves, calendars, duvet covers, leggings, tote bags, mugs, and pillows. If you’d like to see an image in a different color or on another product, please contact me through Bubblemail. It’s the same with calendars. I can make a calendar with any twelve of my images, and it can start on any month.

BIOGRAPHY: I was the lead writer for the book “The Gardener’s Home Companion” published by Macmillan, and was co-author of “Cutting Gardens” for Simon & Schuster. I write a garden column for The Hunt Magazine. I also publish garden books by other writers. You can see the rock garden, regional, fairy, citrus, and herb garden books I bring out at B. B. Mackey Books (

Thanks for reading this and looking at my work. These are my original works and are fully copyrighted. Many are shown only here on RedBubble. I enjoy fabric and surface design. Also I love abstract art and photography.

I am active on Pinterest as . I am on Instagram as BettyBMackey. I joined Zazzle as ColorDiva* and have pillows, fabrics, and other fun things there. I am in Society6 at where I like the tee shirts printed all over and the new duffle bags, and finding lots of RedBubble friends. I really enjoy the new RedBubble scarves. Those I bought look great.

Video of Mackey Art on YouTube.

Just for fun I made and posted a video of my colorful abstract digital images on YouTube. Click here to watch and listen. / The jazzy music is by my younger son but he didn’t want credit! The images pan, shrink, or grow gently as the video flows along to the music. Each frame has the image name. / I used the program ProShow Gold. It is from and is fairly inexpensive and als…
