Editor’s note: We wanted to share with you the story of NelsonArt, and what one young woman is doing to raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer while honoring her mother’s memory.
Ann Taylor Nelson was a gifted artist who lived in Colorado, where she created vivid watercolor landscapes and still lifes. During her lifetime she was able to exhibit and sell her paintings, share ideas, and travel to Europe to develop her unique style and color sense. When she died of pancreatic cancer in 2000, she left behind over a hundred stunning watercolor paintings.
Her daughter, Amy, also an artist, was sitting at her desk shortly after her mother’s death when the idea for NelsonArt struck– by creating a line of fine art cards, she could share her Mom’s work with the world as well as raise money for a worthy cause. We are pleased to say that she chose the Hirshberg Foundation.
The cards are available to purchase by visiting www.nelsonart.net or calling 323-655-4551. Prices begin at $15.00, and a portion of all proceeds go directly to the Hirshberg Foundation. The high quality, vividly colored stationary make a beautiful gift while allowing you to help Amy in her venture to honor her mother and find a cure for pancreatic cancer.
