Carrousel Consultants is owned and operated by carrousel restoration artist Bette Largent. Bette is the preservationist for the 1909 Looff Carrousel in Spokane Washington, and also serves as the current president of the National Carousel Association.
She brings with her 30 years of experience in art, including painting, carving, repair, commercial art, jewelry and product design. This background also includes retail marketing, publicity, fund-raising, grant applications and working with volunteers.
Bette is the author of Paint The Ponies, a manual for painting carrousel figures. This manual is well suited for the beginner, the hobbyist or the community carrousel project.
Carrousel Consultants offers painting and planning workshops for individuals and groups, perfect for those who are about to paint or restore carrousel figures but who don't know how to get started.
We also offer a complete service for private restoration. This service ranges from custom painting services to complete carrousel restorations.
When asked which of the figures that she has painted is her favorite, Bette's reply is always "the one I am working on at this very moment. Every horse or animal must receive 100% of my attention in order for it to be the best it can be."
