About the Artists

Betty Boister
After retiring in 2001, I was looking for something to occupy my time. I saw a flower pot with broken dishes on it and I though that looked like fun. I bought a "how to mosaic" book and taught myself. I was making these pots and giving them away for birthdays and at Christmas. My family loved them. I began to think about venturing out and began to sell them in a antique store in Haven. I picked up more books and started using stained glass along the way. The more work I did the better my final art products became. I eventually wanted to try a craft show so I decided to have a booth at the annual Hillsboro show for the past 12 years. I have also done the Wichita Garden show and the Hutchinson Art Show. I love sharing my craft in my own community. I am always looking for something new to try. I look at Pinterest and Etsy to get ideas and am not afraid to try new things. I have mosaiced everything from wheelbarrows to bowling balls and even done guitars. I spend some time in my shop most days and it brings me great joy.

Robert E. Enders
I started painting in 1983 after taking 12 watercolor lessons. I won “Best of Show” on my first watercolor. I switched to oil painting and have been quite successful at many shows, including the Kansas State Fair in 2015. I paint from photographs and do some improvising. I like mountain and western scenes best. Many people have complimented me for the color I put in my paintings. My artwork also includes wood carving and wood burning this last year. I took second place at the 2016 Kansas State Fair this year of a wood burning of the famous Indian, Geronimo. I am 92 years old and still in good health.
