Her full name is Isabelle Marie Grammar Lau, but we all call her Izzy!
"I live in New Oxford, PA with my husband and 2 Old English Sheepdogs. They are my 'children' now that my 5 sons are grown and on their own. I have 10 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.
"I love painting landscapes. I have tried people and animals but with not much success. My media is Acrylics. I am self-taught with no more than high school art classes and have dabbled over the years with painting.
"Last year I became very drawn to the easel. Not sure if this was the influence of my Uncle Sam's passing or not. He was a very renowned artist in Oils.
"Uncle Sam said the brush told him what to paint. I find myself understanding this now, as when I sit down with an idea in mind, the brush takes over and it never ends up with what I intended it to look like. I am usually pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I wish he were still here to see my work.
"I hope to try my hand at Oils in the near future. We shall see!"
