Volunteer Spotlight: Kathy Dotson
For the last several years, Kathy Dotson, local designer and illustrator, has been gifting her graphic design talents to Hospitality House in a variety of capacities, but she’s most known for her beautiful posters and flyers that bring awareness and support to Hospitality House events, such as Night of Giving and Empty Bowl.
“It is wonderful knowing that my design and artwork have been appreciated and valued over the years,” said Kathy. “Hospitality House serves such a large need in our community. And over the years they have been such a valuable and necessary resource for so many people. As a busy graphic designer, I am fortunate that I can give some service to Hospitality House during the year.”
Kathy has been loyally helping Hospitality House since approximately 2011, but prior to that, she had an experience with one of our founders, Utah Phillips, that has stayed with her all these years.
“A wonderful memory is having Utah Phillips sit for me while I sketched his portrait,” recalled Kathy. “The finished watercolor painting sits in the offices of KVMR radio.”
Today, Kathy continues to help Hospitality House and when she isn’t designing, you can find her enjoying the great outdoors with her husband and two daughters.
