Our Featured Artist of the Month for April is none other than Stephanie “Steph” Fife. Stephanie is currently a senior at Riverton High School were she serves on the Year Book Committee. Some of her hobbies include going to Lake Powell with her family, wake boarding, playing instruments like the ukulele and piano, spending time with friends, and playing with her dog Maggie. Stephanie said that drawing helps her to focus and remember things.
As you can see she enjoys drawing the LDS Temples and many of those drawings are displayed in the clerks office of her ward building. There is no greater feeling than seeing others admire and enjoy your work as much as you do. Keep up the great work Steph!
Our featured artist for the month of March is Koltyr Wright. Koltyr is the fifth of eight children. He is currently a student at Utah Valley University, in Orem Utah, studying international business. He also works as a server at P.F. Chang’s in Provo, but dreams of working for Disney someday. Koltyr enjoys spending his free time singing with his acapella group VoiceLine.
After a recent trip to Disneyland with some friends, Koltyr drew this amazing picture of Stitch from Disney’s Lilo and Stitch and we liked it so much we just had to share it!
When asked what inspired him to create this drawing Koltyr said, “So basically I love to create things. I’m clearly not the most talented artist, just like I’m not the best singer, composer, dancer, or performer. I love that artistic outlets give me a chance to make progress and grow. I love to improve, and that is also why I love Disney. Disney doesn’t just hand out “happy ever after’s”. The character has to earn it. Stitch is a perfect example! He goes from a terrible nuisance only capable of selfishness and destruction to a lovable companion capable of kindness and friendship… and surfing.”
We love his attitude about creativity and how he uses it as an outlet of expression and personal growth. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us! We look forward to seeing what you create next!
