“My art is creative, bright and sometimes downright weird. I enjoy the fun and laughter that comes with each piece. My goal is to share the fun with others and with reasonable prices collecting my art is attainable for all. Perhaps a great fun, family tradition can start with my crazy creations.”
D.H. Boutin was born and raised on Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada. Her childhood was full of fun and adventure. She was always creating some form of art; paint by numbers or sock puppets, there was never a dull moment in her creative youth. Fast forward to 2014 she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, a painful lifelong condition. Her life took a drastic turn and she was forced to quit the corporate world and seek solace from the physical and emotional pain and thru this came her realization that art was going to be her best way of living with this condition. Within 6 months of teaching herself to paint, she realized that her art was worthy enough to sell and have others enjoy.
Her weird and wonderful imagination coupled with her abstract view of the world helps to shape her crazy and downright ridiculous pieces; a true energetic piece of her goes into each and every painting she does!
Boutin believes in giving and sharing with others always without exception and would give anything to see the world as a peaceful and loving place. She regularly partners with charitable organizations to provide her original artwork to raise money for that charity. She is still always looking for more organizations that could use her help.
This is just one way she likes to give back and she wishes she could solve world hunger and the disparity of human rights on this planet. But until then you can find her happily painting out of her cozy studio on the West Coast of Canada with her husband and two dogs by her side.
