Originally from North Carolina, Boughton is a professional artist living in Jackson Hole. Moving to Wyoming in 2008 after graduating from the University of Alabama, she was introduced to a whole new range of life, one that she decided to capture through her artwork. Her love for wild animals of the American West was a huge inspiration for the work she has done. The images that Boughton paints are meant to be statement pieces. A bright, bold, adaptation of a single subject. Her style can best be described as modern western portraiture with a pixelated twist. Her use of negative space and shadow blocking is done specifically to emphasize the subject matter. The medium used is acrylic paint on a wooden canvas, finished with a poured epoxy resin.
