And Mrs. Yoe refined her gifts and skills within workshops throughout the South. She paints with acrylics, oils, and watercolors, while she also finds pleasure in collages. Her long participation in the arts has rendered a variation of subjects. Marian discovers a sense of artful delight in everything and everyone. Her favorite subjects would be to capture the amazing beauty of flowers.
