I used this as a basis for a Coffee Club program at the library. Easy format to use--basic information without too much reading, interesting anecdotes, good representation of paintings. Note: it is a small book, not the usual coffee table size art book.

Mom liked this 112p mini-format title. It was easy to hold, had minimum text while speaking of her life and techniques, and lots of clear, full-color examples of her work. There was also an example of her fiber arts.
