Liz Boley ’05: Artist, Huntsville, AL
What and where did you study after graduating from Randolph?
I studied Studio Art and Technical Theatre at Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC, which is home to the Blue Hose. We routinely end up on the "worst mascot" lists on Buzzfeed and other online news sources, but we love our Hose!
What are some of the highlights of your scholastic/career paths?
Watching Huntsville's art and entertainment community grow over the past several years has been really exciting. Huntsville has a love of local artwork, so I have had more opportunities to produce art work and commissions over the last two years. I have enjoyed working at Terramé and Spirited Art; teaching classes is so much fun, and I love applying make-up! Every work day is different, and I love that. I am excited about what the future holds.
What awards/honors have you received?
I recently began entering my art work in shows and charitable auctions. The most recent was the Belle Chèvre Goat Show. Artists were inspired to create artwork based on Belle Chèvre’s logo (a Goat), and if your piece was sold, half of the proceeds went to Heifer Project International. It was such a cool idea that I jumped on the chance to participate and I won the “Facebook Favorite” for my Goat piece "Goat Romance." The piece sold, so I was able to donate to Heifer International. I am eager to participate in more events like this in the future because they combine two of my favorite things; artwork and giving back.
What do you currently do? What are your interests?
I am currently a manager and make-up artist at Terramé Day Spa and Salon, and I am also an assistant manager and teacher at Spirited Art, both in Huntsville.
I love creating artwork, challenging myself with different materials, and I enjoy working on commissions for people who want specific and unique pieces of art, which allows me to try my hand at many different styles. Being a make-up artist is another form of artwork that I love. Of course, I still enjoy theatre and seeing performances, and Wicked is a lifelong favorite!
How do you think Randolph prepared you for where you are today?
My Randolph education was a blessing. I am very lucky to have had Randolph to prepare me for my college experience at Presbyterian College. I learned so much from all of my teachers at Randolph, and when it came to Theatre and Art, Connie Voight, Mary Jones, Rosie Dumoulin, and Kimberly Reyes were inspirations who taught me more than I ever realized while at Randolph. Teaching at Spirited Art has given me a new respect for my former teachers. All of my teachers exuded enthusiasm for their subjects because they loved what they taught and who they taught. To make my classes fun, it has been important to remember to show my enthusiasm and love for art when I teach.
Tell us one "fun fact" about yourself
In 2014, I was able to visit two of my good friends from Randolph in Oklahoma and Las Vegas! Oklahoma was turned into a "mini reunion." Several Randolph Alumni and I descended upon Oklahoma, and it was a wonderful trip; we even got a snow day together! I am lucky enough to have kept such close friends from high school and had the chance to visit them in their current towns.
Your 10 year reunion is coming up this year on Oct. 18-19, 2015 during Alumni & Reunion Weekend. What are you looking forward to the most?
I am looking forward to seeing my classmates and learning where they are and what they are doing. It would be awesome to see all of our teachers that taught the class of 2005—those that are still teaching at Randolph and those that have retired or moved elsewhere. I know that I never imagined where any of my classmates or I would be 10 years from that day in May 2005, so I am thrilled at the idea of being able to see everyone and catch up.
