Betsy (really Elizabeth) Hackett is a Marine Corps Spouse, mother of 2, artist, publisher, and former Engineer. In 2013 she started the series "We Call Them Home" and started taking commissions. By 2016 she had completed 18 pieces for the "We Call Them Home" series, and designed and published a hardbound, museum quality book which was printed here in the USA. Dear friend, historian, and fellow Marine Corps Spouse, Jennifer Mazzara, provided the historical text included for each piece in the book. Copies of We Call Them Home: A collection of Marine Corps watercolors are still available, and prints of all her pieces can be found on this site! While the book only contains 17 Marine Corps Bases and the Commandant's house, additional bases have been commissioned and can be purchased as prints and appended to the back of the book.
