Nellie Mae Rowe

This is Rowe's biography, in Ben's words:
"Nellie Mae Rowe made gum sculptures. She used recyled things to make art. She made dolls out of scraps of cloth. She liked to draw with crayons, markers, pens and pencils. Her house was decorated with lots of arts and crafts. It was called Nellie Mae’s Playhouse. When visitors came she sang to them."

I think he summed it up nicely... maybe a future as an art historian? Right now we are working on a sculpture out of trash we found + stuff in the recycle bin.
