From the Estate of the late Linda Kornberg, Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Mary Paulsen grew up in Sunset Beach, NC, as one of ten children born to a local shrimp fisherman and his wife. Mary persevered and provided for her family through the years.

One morning in the summer of 1996, God told Mary to go out into her front yard to build a village for her collection of 6,000 dolls. Her village would go towards helping to Feed Hungry Children throughout the world.

In 1998, Mary got another calling from God. This time he told Mary to paint on the reverse side of old glass windows. Never trained in art, God put the images in Mary’s head, and Mary painted them.

Good estate condition.
