This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A long-time wildlife artist, Gwen Frostic worked in several mediums and also has written poetry. Thanks to her generosity, a garden has been dedicated in her name to the Frederick Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The following is from her website: www.gwenfrostic.com

Gwen passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 25, 2001.
She was born April 26, 1906 in Sandusky, Michigan to Fred W. and Sara (Alexander) Frostic.
As a well-known author and lecturer Gwen shared her observations of the universe.
She was owner and president of Presscraft Papers, Gwen Frostic Prints, of Benzonia.

Over the years Gwen had been awarded honorary degrees from many colleges and universities.

In 1978 Michigan Governor William Milliken proclaimed May 23rd as Gwen Frostic Day in Michigan, and in 1986 she was inducted into the Michigan Woman's Hall of Fame.

Long before her death she wrote her epitaph:
"Here lies one doubly blessed.
She was happy and she knew it."
