Art Book: My Name is Georgia

YAY!!!   One of my favourite people is doing a guest post for me today.   Lori is going to tell you about a neat book and interesting person.

One of my favorite artists is Georgia O'Keefe. Partly because she is New Mexican, partly because her artwork is just stunning, partly because she is just an interesting person. Whatever way you look at it, Georgia O'Keefe is worth learning a bit about. That is why, when I was able to visit the Georgia O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe, NM, I picked up a children's biography about her to share with the girls.

My Name Is Georgia a portrait by Jeanette Winter
This is a lovely children's book that takes us from Georgia's childhood through to her old age. She moved from her Wisconsin childhood home to Chicago, New York, Texas, and New Mexico. She was always searching for inspiration and she found it in nature.

This is not a difficult book to read but it is an inspiring one. Reach for your desires - this is the inspiration from Georgia O'Keefe. And if it encourages you to read more about her and all that she did for the art movement and community, well, that's all the better.
This book is published by Voyager Books and was purchased at the Georgia O'Keefe Museum in Santa Fe, NM.

If you were inspired to learn more about Georgia O'Keefe perhaps this video might help.

You can find Lori blogging at At Home where life happens.  You need to visit her seriously, she writes well and has a good heart. :)

  1. That looks like a wonderful book! I really like Georgia O'Keefe as well.

  2. Thank you so much for allowing me to share, Annette. I had forgotten I'd sent this your way and when I saw the picture, I thought "Oh, my favorite artist!" It made me smile to see it and giggle at myself when I realize it was the post I had shared with you. I love this book and this artist. - Lori
