Celebrating THE artist of Fabius Township

She is an artist in so many ways, in glass, in watercolor, pastel, and oil, in fabric, in her teaching and as a friend.  Happy 80th birthday, Joan!  Originally from California, she has made Fabius her home for over forty years.  Her work graces many homes as well as public buildings and churches.  Here are just a couple examples, starting with a small mandala in pastels:
in slab glass:

in watercolor:


  1. Beautiful works. Happy Birthday!

  2. A fantastic artist! I hope I'm still able to do what I love when I'm 80.

    Hope your day is filled with joy, Joan!
