Artist Bettie Ringma was 28 years old when she left Holland and arrived in the States. She met fellow artist, curator, and writer Marc H. Miller, and the duo developed a working relationship that found them moving to New York City in the late 1970s and rubbing elbows with East Village luminaries like Patti Smith, Richard Hell, and Debbie Harry.
