Edna Vierra

Was thrifting a while back and found this cute Edna Vierra original print for only a $1.99! Edna Vierra was an artist from the 50's and 60's. She painted wonderful children's animals. I haven't found any other prints by her with children in them. So I feel kind of special to own this one. She was well known for her pallete knife painting. This painting is now hanging in my daughters room.

Hi...I am Edna Vierra..the artist from the 50's and 60's that did your little girl picture.
What fun to know someone still appreciates my old work.
I am now 74 years old and still painting for fun.

Hi Edna,
In my mothers things, I found a piece of art by you that is a couple sitting on a bench (three dimensional) Above them are the words "Love is contagious... we get it from one another" On the back of the piece in pencil it states "Handcrafted for Vi and Howard Balmer's 40th wedding anniversary November 5th 1972 by Edna Vierra" from Betty and Jim Stevens". Mom passed away 3 years ago at 96 and has more than one of your pieces. What beautiful pieces of art.
