Devan Horton is a graduate of Northern Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting. Since receiving her degree, Devan creates and promotes her artistic career by showing in local and national galleries, as well as through an entrepreneurial approach by curating a series of pop-up shows named, “Perennial”, in her hometown of Covington.
When looking for new subjects and concepts, Devan frequently looks toward nature, often times at its more unpleasant subjects like bugs, fungi, and roots, and paints them in formats that her audience can build new appreciations and recognize the beauty that was there all along. She enjoys pushing the boundaries of her mediums through experimentation by introducing non-traditional materials such as sand and bleach into the process. All of her work is motivated around provoking her audience to change their perception of beauty.
