December 2023 - Marie Lejeune

Marie Lejeune is the former Children’s Librarian, and current Director of the Rochester Public Library.  She writes:

I have loved looking at art (and trying to make it) for as long as I can remember.  As a kid, one of my favorite times of the year was when stores started stocking school supplies; I loved looking at all the crayons, paintboxes, colored pencils, and markers.  Art supply stores are still one of my favorite places; there is so much possibility for creativity and beauty in all those supplies!  Although I love painting and drawing, my skills didn’t warrant any college level study.  So I’ve dabbled in art; primarily in mixed media and various fiber arts.  Then, in February of 2020, I signed up for a class to learn how to use the potter’s wheel. It was cancelled after only a few meetings because of the Covid-19 pandemic, but I’d already fallen in love with the medium.  Several years later I was finally able to try again, and these are the results.
