"This celebrated artist and children’s illustrator is about 80 years old (“That’s not a polite question to ask a lady, ” she tells an interviewer) , and she is still a tough, fiercely independent woman of strong opinions and plainspoken ways. Her weathered house, built for her in 1972 by one of her sons, sits on 250 acres in the rural mountains of southern Vermont. She shares it with her beloved Welsh corgis, Nubian goats, a cat, chickens, birds in antique cages, geese, and other animals. She wears her long frocks, petticoats, aprons, lacy kerchiefs, and handknit shawls with an unconscious grace, as if she truly lived 150 years earlier. She weaves, spins, knits, reads The Dairy Goat Journal, and works on her drawings in the soft lamplight. But nothing gives Tasha as much comfort these days as her sprawling garden; thoughts of the garden sustain her even in winter." (Mother Earth Living web page)
