Welcome to The Walkabout Woman Blog!
My name is Betsy Lewis and I am on a walkabout . . .
I am an artist, blogger and social media marketing consultant, living and working on the Oregon Coast. A 1200 square ft. elementary school classroom is my studio, office and living space.
The word “walkabout” refers to an Australian aboriginal custom of wandering for a period of time in the wild bush to retrace the paths and stories of one’s ancestors.
The liberating soul-growing adventure of a “walkabout” intrigued and enchanted me, so I borrowed it to give shape to living the life I have always dreamed of.
I created a fresh new definition of a walkabout, and although I am not venturing into the bush (other than metaphorically), I believe my journey remains true to the original spirit of a walkabout.
The general theme of my walkabout is freedom. I know some specifics, but much is sketchy. I am shooting for a mix of action, consciousness and openness, and will be sharing my experiences through art and writing here.

I am also building a virtual community of women who are interested in following or taking walkabouts themselves. The Walkabout Woman Project will invite women to design, create, live, and share their own walkabouts. This project is part of my life-long passion to enrich the lives of women and, as such, is wholly volunteer. There is no cost or sales-pitch involved!
