Ellen Hirsh-Norton

A self-taught artist who learned all about art & life from her wonderfully bohemian artist grandmother. And now I need to get to a 12-step program to slow down my addiction at a different website & start painting again (most of my works are from so many years ago). Started out in oils & pastels, but after taking a watercolor class at a local high school, I fell in love with the medium & have never looked back! I am so happy that a good friend of mine, who is a member here, told me about PIL, and hope to get more involved & meet people as I learn to navigate my way around! Nice to meet you ~ Ellen
