Jacquie Roland has come a long way, from injured and recovering in a nursing home, to proud owner of a beautifully remodeled home in the village of Saugerties in the Hudson Valley, New York. For now, she can create her art all over her 3-story home. She plans ahead, however, designing the middle floor as an eventual home in itself when she is unable to navigate the stairs, and the bottom floor ready for a live-in nurse or other helper. At present, she admits to spending most of her time in the delightful sunroom shown below.
Jennifer Farley has written a delightful article on Jacquie Roland, with details of her injury, recovery, and art. The focus is on how she has gradually transformed the once abandoned historical Wales Tea Room home into the glorious finished product shown in the pics below. Congratulations, Jacquie! We are glad you never gave up! 😀
