She has a permanent gallery at Elim Park. Her varied subject matter includes portraits, animals, landscapes, and florals.
Ms. Dupont began creating watercolors seriously after she retired and says, “It amazing to me that I am just coming into my own as an artist at eighty. Look out world, I’m just getting started.” She believes that anyone can make good art at any age if they have the passion to practice, practice, practice.
Ms. Dupont is also the author of five books. Her historical romances are based on her genealogy, The Legananny Legacy Trilogy includes “Winds of County Down,” “The Selfsame Moon and Stars,” and “The Scent of Smoldering Bridges.” Her second trilogy, Swamp Yankee Secrets begins with “Echoes in My Soul.” These are available in the Local Authors Section here at Cheshire Public Library. She has also written a non-fiction book, “With His Hand on Ours,” we are all creative, even you, even me.
