Description

Growing up on a Wisconsin farm, Georgia O'Keeffe began gathering all sorts of objects -- sticks and stones, flowers and bones. Although she was teased for her interest in unique shapes and sizes, young Georgia declared: -Someday, I'm going to be an artist- -- and that is exactly what she became.
Jen Bryant's story of Georgia O'Keeffe celebrates the famous artist's fascination with natural shapes, -common objects, - and her unusual way of looking at the world. Bethanne Andersen's fluid, graceful illustrations capture the beauty of O'Keeffe's work and spirit.
