Karen Doty: October 2018 Artist of the Month

We are pleased to highlight the work of artist Karen Doty, our October 2018 artist of the month.

Karen Doty is a painter, design educator and interactive graphic designer. Currently, she teaches as an adjunct professor of Art and Design at Grand View University and as a graduate instructor of record at Iowa State University. In 2015, she received a Master in Fine Art from Iowa State University. Additionally, she is working toward a Ph.D. in Human Computer Interaction at ISU, studying augmented reality and holographic design. Her art is characterized by multiple layers of color with strong gestural movement.

In 2017 the Pettitt Group purchased this original piece of artwork as part of our Supporting the Arts initiative. Throughout the year we give away fine art prints of this beautiful artwork as client closing gifts. The original will be auctioned in November 2018 at our annual “Art Night Out” at the Boise Art Museum.
