Nashville Arts Magazine featured Butler Steltemeier in this month’s Artist Profile. Watercolor abounds!
When you meet Butler Steltemeier, you’ll be in medias res, but you’ll be glad you did. She’s charming. Quirky. Entertaining. Wears her heart on her sleeve. She’ll even let you call her “But.” A conversation with her makes you pause to wonder what life would have been like had she picked up a microphone instead of a paintbrush. Thank heaven she didn’t. A world without Steltemeier’s magical realism of watercolor art would be far less enchanting indeed.
