Jane Morton Norton

Jane Morton Norton

The image of the Owl and the girl on the current Offering page was painted by Margaret's Grandmother Jane Norton (1908 to 1988). Jane began painting at age eleven and painted all of her life. She lived in Louisville Kentucky and tended mostly to give her paintings to family and friends. Jane studied the writings of Rudolf Steiner for much of her life, and was greatly influenced by his mystical view of the world, which is reflected in her intuitive work as an artist. Many have enquired whether there might be prints of the painting of the Owl and the Girl. Unfortunately, there are no copies of this image currently available. Jane would be thrilled with the attention that the painting has received.
