Minnie Evans

April 14, 2010

Green Teacher

On the Good Friday of  1935 Minnie Evans had a dream in which she heard a voice saying “Why don’t you draw or die.”  That started her on her long journey as an artist.  Mrs. Evans is recognized as one of the most important American self-taught visionary artists of the 20th century.  About her art she has said: “I have no imagination. I never plan a drawing. They just happen.”
