About Kym Balthazar Fetsko


Kym Balthazar Fetsko is a contemporary oil and cold wax abstract painter who lives and works in Dunmore, Pennsylvania. A University of the Arts graduate, she was an award-winning illustrator for two decades before transitioning to painting.


Because creativity often thrives in ambiguity and uncertainty, Kym’s focus involves cultivating a mindset and environment that supports creative thinking and harnessing the intuitiveness needed to guide the process. Her oil and cold wax paintings 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.


Her paintings have been selected for numerous juried exhibitions including Art of the State - Pennsylvania, The SDMAAG Spring 2022 Exhibition, and the Rice Gallery of Fine Art Juried Exhibition. She has also shown her artwork regionally in Northeastern PA and the Poconos. Kym’s art is found in private collections both in the United States and internationally.
