Title of Piece:Library Fairy Annabella
Tell us the story behind this piece.
Selena, my daughter-in-law, took my granddaughter, Annabella, to the library in Colorado Springs one afternoon. Of course, Annabella dressed herself, Mommy did her hair and off they went. Annabella was so excited to see all the books that she could check out and read!
Kathleen Boyts is a wife, mother and grandmother, artist and graduate of John Brown University. In the ‘80’s she started her own business called “Creative Arts,” specializing in oil painting and interior design. Her passion for sharing art with others is evident in her desire to offer art experiences for all ages. “I love to see how art effects people. To see the light bulb moment when a student realizes they can create art,” she says. Boyts loves to change it up and master new mediums, however, her favorite is oil painting. She gets her inspiration from two of her favorite artists, Fanch and Tarky. Her passion for sharing art with others is evident in her desire to offer art experiences for all ages. “I love to see how art effects people. To see the light bulb moment when a student realizes they can create art,” she says. You can find Boyts’s work displayed at Creative Fish Art Gallery, Facebook, Etsy or on Northern Indiana Arts and Earth Trail. She can be contacted at email@example.com or messaged through Facebook.
What does art mean to you?
Art over the years has evolved in my life. One thing constant is how art can be such a great avenue to reach hurting people; people who are afraid to open up, or teaching people to relax through art. I love using it to help make a difference in people’s lives.
Who is/are your biggest supporter(s)?
My biggest supporter is my best friend and husband Lawerence Boyts. Of course my kids are great cheerleaders. My son, Brock, is a 3D animation artist with Blue Sky. It’s fun for us to talk about what we love to do together. He get’s me….
