Josephine Boyer believes everyone has a God-given talent to share with others. The gift she offers is her art. Boyer started Son-shine Art, a business that provides one-of-kind personalized creations last year. These creations include baby announcements, pictures of children’s rooms, greeting cards, and face-painting and black-and-white drawings for special occasions. The business got started because Boyer finally found the time to focus on her art. Moving six times in six years and caring for her son, Justino, kept her busy. However, after moving to Los Alamos last year with her son and husband, Brian, Boyer was able to focus on her art. Additionally, running her own business means she can work at her own pace and still be there for her family. Boyer explained she named the business Son-shine Art to recognize that Jesus is always present. Son-shine Art is just the tip of the iceberg of where Boyer’s art has taken her. It all began at age 5 when her father gave her a wooden easel. No one else in her family is an artist, although her mother was a seamstress, but “my father just knew I liked (art),” Boyer said. “He always encouraged me.” At 10 years old, Boyer took her first oil-painting class. She eventually gradated from the Central Academy of Commercial Art in Cincinnati.
