Born in Chihuahua, Mexico, Ines Alvidres exhibited a natural artistic talent from a young age. All through school, she looked forward to art classes & projects. Drawing and painting came easily to her, but it was the joy she received from creating a simple piece of art that impacted her the most. In middle school, Ines was asked to choose between art and guitar. Although learning guitar intrigued her, for Inez the choice was clear. Even though she knew how to paint, she wanted to learn more. To this day, she can’t play one chord on the guitar. In order to improve their lives, her parents moved the entire family to Beaumont when Inez was 16 years old. The first couple of years were filled with turmoil, fear of a new place, and a painful homesickness for Mexico.Then during her senior year, her teacher tasked her with creating a mural of Mexico for the Cinco de Mayo program. With basic acrylic paint, Inez spent a sleepless night bringing her beloved homeland to life on a canvas of sewn-together bed sheets.

Born and raised in Hardin County. “My work reflects the small things that impacted me during childhood. Dirt roads and pine trees made for a beautiful sight, but eyes were typically cast down to the ground in search of a mossy patch or exciting new insect. Driven by instinct to touch and feel everything, and to hold it as close to my face as possible, my artwork discards the beauty of landscapes and scenes of human activity in favour of singular living objects.” Betty paints for business and pleasure and in 2016 established her standalone studio/micro-gallery for the production of original work. Open to visitors by appointment or as artist is present, this 240 square foot Calder Street studio with its cool small-time d.i.y. aesthetic presented ideal conditions for building a deeper connection between the art community and the general public. The studio has quickly become a popular hangout spot for rogue creatives and roaming artists. BSCW studio also regularly hosts events for the public, and extends a warm welcome to artists simply wanting to pay a visit and play for a while!
