2015 Catalog Cover Art Competition Winner

Ida Faraghan, Cinnaminson NJ

I began watercolor painting at age 65. With no formal training, I struggled with the art, until I found a local art teacher, Rosemary Hutchins. Extremely talented, giving, and sharing of her craft. She was my inspiration to continue to improve my love of watercolor.

I have been painting for 21 years, and still learning. I continue my love for sheep in my watercolors.

Happily married for 66 years. Five fantastic, loving, talented children, that presented us with 12 beautiful grandchildren; 4, about to be 5, wonderful great-grandchildren.

I am overwhelmed and honored to be part of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, that I have attended for many years.
