" I have a life-long love affair with the Blessed Mother.

"In the late 70's Fr. Hoelle asked if I would be a speaker at a Marian Conference at U.D. It was an honor.

"I have always been artistic, but waited to paint after raising seven children. I have been painting for 12 years and have many ribbons. I have not entered paintings outside the area, with 23 grandchildren and 3 greats, I don't have the time."

– Marilyn Hart

    This book served as the inspiration for several of Marilyn's paintings as noted in this online exhibit. For more information about this book, click on the cover image.   Mary's Flowers and Legends
