Artist Kimberly Doney on display at the Granby Library

Artist Kimberly DoneyCome to the Fraser Valley Library Community Room during October to enjoy the artwork of local Hot Sulphur Springs artist, Kimberly Doney.

Kimberly has lived in Grand County for fifty years and grew up on a ranch with horses.  Even before she was in kindergarten, she spent much of her time drawing horses.  A high school art teacher introduced Kimberly to many medias, but pen and ink with watercolor held her interest above all else. 

Contact one of our libraries if you would like to have your artwork displayed or have a collection to share in one of our display cases.
