Age and arts a good combo
Since she was a child, 94-year-old Daphne Odjig has been a talented artist. She primarily worked in painting, but learned embroidery from her mother and soapstone sculpted from her grandfather. Her most famous work is a 27 foot mural. But when arthritis began taking its toll, she knew that she wouldn’t be able to paint again. Then, Daphne found colored pencils, and filled up four sketchbooks in her first three months of drawing. The pencils worked better for her new sense of coordination.
