Artist felt she did it truly in the integralistic style, striving to create a feeling of being able to follow a path leading upward or onward and upward as man's slogan ... It is no particular place but Painted In fantasy based on some basic rules of composition ... It grew in artist's mind's eye with no references to a specific place ... It is my prayer it will be a joy to all and that many will enjoy a dream of accomplishment as they climb Its path … Born in 1915 on a farm In Decatur County ... In 1953 took classes for two years at the John Herron Art Institute and for five years attended Indiana University extension under George Jo Mess ... paintings have been shown and won awards in the East as well as Indiana ... In 1961 the Goucester Art Museum asked permission to use her name in a group of artists to promote a school (style) of painting they called "The Integralistic School".
