    Kathy Prosser Bovard began her journey as an artist following a long career in public service that culminated in serving as Chief of Staff to Senator John Glenn. Kathy's work in watercolor is whimsical and full of life, and is a testament to continuing education in the arts for discovering new talents and ways of creative expression.

    Michael Jackson, mentored by his grandfather, William Connors, began painting at the age of 8. He went on to study at the Columbus College of Art and Design, where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing. In 2001, Michael moved to Wooster, Ohio to begin a career in Industrial Design. He has now shifted his attention from product design back to the canvas. He has shown his paintings in group shows at the Wayne Center for the Arts since 2010 and currently participates in juried shows throughout N.E Ohio.
