Kym Balthazar Fetsko is a contemporary abstract painter who lives and works in Dunmore, Pennsylvania. She is a University of the Arts graduate and was an award-winning illustrator for two decades. Kym took advantage of the pandemic time at home to fully invest in the opportunity to develop her abstract paintings and transition from illustration.


Her oil and cold wax paintings are inspired by emotion and music and are brought to life by building and excavating grungy, textural layers until the history of each painting’s journey is revealed and the final layer of wax is applied.


New to showcasing her work, her recent paintings have been selected for numerous juried exhibitions including The Rice Gallery of Fine Art Juried Exhibition, The SDMAAG Winter Exhibition, and The Atlantic Highlands Art in the Age of Covid Exhibition. She has also shown her artwork locally in the Poconos and Scranton, PA. Kym’s art is found in many private collections throughout the United States.
