This wonderful woman was my dad's sister. I have the water color painting of the magnolias dated 1945. Also, a portrait of me, actual size, when I was 4-I stood as one aunt painted and one told me stories. She was a very talented woman and a wonderful person.
According to newspaper article Lila Shelby Wallace was inspired to painting from an auto accident. Article also provides biographical insight to her works of which I have Magnolias, signed and dated 58, N.A.W.A.
The artist was also a member of The National Association of Womens Artists. I have a work signed Lila Shelby N.A.W.A
