Old Monroe, Mo.
After teaching art for nearly 30 years, retired elementary school teacher Jane Windish has turned one of her lessons into her hobby.
“I started somewhere along the line, I don’t know, ages ago, doing yarns,” Jane reminisced. “I would have them in the classroom to do things with the children, but nothing like this.”
Jane was always a visual person, dabbling in paint, watercolors, pen and ink and even photography, but then she realized she also loved the touch and feel of working with fibers. And, so, she ventured into a whole new world of creating a different kind of art.

For 84-year-old Phyllis Borgardt, art was once a way of escape when she was a child growing up in the Great Depression.
“Drawing began when a crayon was first placed in my hand as a very young child,” she said. “When you live out in the country and grew up in the time I did, you had to find ways to entertain yourself — so that’s how I did it.”
Recently retired, “the paintbrush calls again,” as Phyllis says, and she has begun exploring new forms of art, including doing pet portraits and illustrations for her books. Oh, by the way, she’s a writer, too, and is a member of both the Oak Leaf Artist Guild
and the Saturday Writers Group
at the Arts Centre.
