SPONSOR US!

Starting May 1st, 2022, artist Liz Boston will move into a class A motorhome to live fulltime and travel to all 50 states for around 5 years (possibly a little longer) spending approximately 1 - 3 months per state.  She will be living and traveling with her Husband, Scott and 2 dogs, Kona and Ollie. While they travel Liz will be making paintings of what inspires her, what makes each state unique, highlighting local landmarks, foods, traditions and anything else that gives each state it's character. Along the way, Liz will be attending local outdoor art markets, selling prints and paintings, promoting the tour and Jerrys Artarama as a designated Jerrys Artarama Artist Ambassador.

LIZ BOSTON

Liz is a painter, mainly using acrylics. Her work is very illustrative, bold, colorful and crisp. Liz is a graduate of the Museum School of Fine Art, Boston, year 2000. She has run her own retail art studio and been the owner/manager of 2 bowling alleys since then. 2 years ago she was finally diagnosed as Autistic at 43 years old. Painting the country has always been her dream, and now it's happening!

SCOTT MOORE

Liz's husband Scott is a North Eastern University grad,  and was a professional bus driver for years before owning 2 bowling alleys with Liz for many years.
He is an avid photographer/videographer and will be shooting and editing the YouTube show for the tour. He has worked as a bowling mechanic for years and has great mechanical skills which will come in handy with the RV.

KONA

Kona is a senior dog at 13.5 years old. With his age comes years of experience. He started his career as a bowling mascot, showing up for every league night. After that he became the mascot of Liz's art studio. He would greet everyone, pose with kids birthday parties and paint nights for pictures, and hang out with the art students. Now he is excited for his new adventures on the Paint The States Tour!

OLLIE

Ollie is the newest edition to the team! He was born last April and is a Puggle (half pug, half beagle) just like Kona. Ollie has no work experience but is eager to learn everything that Kona knows. He is a very affectionate and friendly pup who welcomes anyone that he meets to be his friend.  Ollie talks to us using his buttons, and he usually has a lot to say! We will post him doing this to our instagram as well!
