Synopsis

Through Georgia's Eyes by Rachel Rodriguez

Georgia O'Keefe saw the world differently from most people. As a child she roamed the prairie with a sketch pad in hand, struggling to capture on paper what she saw all around her. At art school she learned to speak in paint on canvas. Living in New York, Georgia felt confined by city life. She longed for inspiration, for vast expanses of space, and she found them both in the red hills and silent deserts of New Mexico. Lyrical and vivid, this is a portrait of an exceptional artist, a woman whose eyes were open to the wonder of the world.

As a park ranger in Olympic National Park, she climbed to the jaw-dropping summit of Mt. Olympus, flew in a helicopter searching to rescue lost hikers and picked up campers' trash in the woods.

Julie Paschkis was born in Pennsylvania and attended Germantown Friends School, Ringerike Folkehogskole in Norway, Cornell University and the School for American Craftsmen at RIT. She taught art to grade school children for about 8 years. During that time she continued to work on her own art and illustration.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
