This is a web exhibition about my mother’s life and Artistic/Creative talent in America 1908 – 2009. The exhibition is made up of stories and photographs from her particular life and, as she made most of her clothes and ours through the 1950’s, many of the pictures show her talent for Fashion in this way.
My mother was an extremely charming woman with a great sense of humor that her children cherish. She held an uncommonly “youthful appearance” that stayed with her all her life. She was a very very passive human being and talked very little about herself. I did not retain a great deal of what my mother told me about herself……

Some of what I am going to say is conjecture based on what I was able to write down and remember of my discussions with her over the 66 years that I knew her. The rest is from the written memories of her favorite sister Polly Winkler.
But, I am left with this wish to celebrate my mother’s life and artistic talent and how she used it. In so doing, I put her to rest in peace, after her death at the age of 100 1/2 years in 2009.
