NANCY SARVER

I grew up in the “big” town of Denver, IN, and graduated from Jefferson Township High School in 1958. I married my childhhod sweetheart after school and stayed in Denver for fifty (50) years.

 

I had always loved to do all kinds of crafts, but could never learned to draw. Finally in the seventies (70's), I decided I really wanted to oil paint on canvas and with the help of Peru's craft shop, “Tom and Marilyn's” I started in an oil painting class. The teachers were Ruth Bowland and Pam Hull. I painted with them for many years. “Thanks Ruthie and Pam.” Through the years my friends and I have painted with many well known artists across the midwest.

 

Although I have always worked full time as a beautrician, factory worker (basket weaving and plaster molds, for instance), I have always felt the need to keep oil painting. I have found it important to follow up on workshops and continually paint.

 

As you travel watch for Miami County Barn Quilts Trails. I helped get this started and have

painted over one hundred (100) quilts. There was a Miami County Barn Quilt Trail Driving Tour

Map ( 1 & 2) to follow. Inspired by the 2016 Indiana State/County Bicentennial, I am painting

legacy barn quilts and posting them around town.
