Kwani Povi Winder is a favorite at the JSMB Christmas Season Art Showcase. Several years ago she received the “People’s Choice Award” Kwani developed a deep love for art from the time she could hold a pencil. She attended college at Brigham Young University-Idaho but was pursuing a degree in Biology. Three classes shy of a bachelors, she switched to art, took her first painting class and graduated with a BFA in Oil Painting in 2013
Kwani calls herself a stay at home artist. She does almost all her creating with her daughter at her side, including painting en plein air. She loves the outdoors and takes every opportunity she can to paint and learn under nature’s canopy.
Kwani’s work is also heavily influenced by being a Santa Clara Pueblo Indian. Through her paintings she seeks to preserve, share and educate about her unique heritage. Come see why her work is a must see at theJSMB in SLC, Utah-November 28-December 1.
