Edna M. (Bauer) Cornelius 1907 -2003
Rob Smith Edna Cornelius, artist
1907 - 2003
Edna became "famous
in her neighborhood" as
a great wit and an even
greater friend.  She was
also a self-taught artist
who captured
landscape images of the
American Midwest and
beyond.

This site provides some
insight into the artist's
life and work.
Edna rule #1: Make friends across all   
generations.  Stay interested in the lives
of younger people.
