ARTISTS:                   Sue Johnson & Lou Ann Mattson, Lindstrom

CHAIR NAME:          “Uff Da”

Sue and Lou Ann often partner up with their creative ideas. They are amateur artists who have painted everything from a brightly colored boathouse to wine glasses.   Both women have taught elementary education for many years, which explains their belief in Picasso’s quote: “Every child is an artist.   The problem is how to remain an artist once she grows up.”   They’re trying!
