My Name Is Georgia: A Portrait by Jeanette Winter Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the time she was just a young girl, Georgia O'Keeffe viewed the world in her own way. While other girls played with toys and braided their hair, Georgia practiced her drawing and let her hair fly free. As an adult, Georgia followed her love of art from the steel canyons of New York City to the vast plains of New Mexico. There she painted all day, and slept beneath the stars at night. Throughout her life Georgia O'Keeffe followed her dreams--and so found her way to become a great American artist.

Synopsis:

The story of a girl who had the courage to follow her heart.

Synopsis:

From the time she was a young girl, Georgia O'Keeffe saw the world in her own way.

At night she climbed a ladder to the starlit sky to await the sun. She walked in the hills at daybreak and in moonlight. She gathered bones and rocks, and brought them home to paint. And she always knew what was in her heart--to be an artist.
