Artist latest winner of Art for Health competition

Family Health West hospital in Fruita displays the works of Grand Valley artist Julie Thielsen, the latest winner of the bi-annual Art for Health competition.

“We are thrilled to have Julie’s work in the hospital,” said Angelina Salazar, director of community relations for Family Health West. “Our patients, our staff, their families and friends all have the opportunity to not only view what our local artists are doing, they get to experience an environment that promotes healing.”

Thielsen works primarily in alcohol ink, using bold colors and a fluid media to create her compositions. For more information, visit
