So where did these whimsical bovines and silly cats come from? Well, in 2003, shortly after Valerie had moved back to Gainesville, Florida, Tony, her adult son, recommended, "Go take some art classes (to stay out of trouble)!" So, Valerie signed up for some watercolor and acrylic classes through Santa Fe College's continuing education program. Splashing bright colors on canvas and paper lassoed Valerie’s fancy. Cows started moseying out of the paint tubes, and soon she was “hooved.”

Welcome to Isabel’s World!

May the MOO Be with YOU!
