Elizabeth Mumford: The Art of Marketing Nostalgia
by Jane Schaller
Take a reverent, spirited Indiana farm girl, fold in dollops of raw artistic talent, and sprinkle with plenty of genteel, classic culture. Gently toss with integrity, then marinate inside a fanciful Cape Cod home until ripe and ready to sizzle.
Yield: A rare, smooth blend of deep artistic passion, accentuated by enduring commercial success that is Elizabeth Mumford.
"I'm one of those persons who, ever since I was little, I was always painting and drawing and doing artwork," Liz recalls "Fortunately my mother was very encouraging of me." But there were not many opportunities to nurture a budding artist in the rural elementary school she attended.
That changed when she was sent to a boarding school in Michigan that possessed a strong art program. At twelve years old, she was all at once immersed in an array of art classes and experiences, including one seemingly innocuous course offering: Life Art.

A Teacher's Love for Art Inspires Her Students
Bernadette Waystack showed promise as an artist in second grade, winning the "Saint Luke Award" at an art exhibit at Boston College.
Twelve years in a Boston Catholic school, however, did not nurture her talents. "I went dormant," says the Harwich art teacher. "When I compare my middle school years to what my students have, I can't help wondering how differently my own art path might have been."
