What began as a paint-by-number hobby in her twenties led to real artistic adventures for Dorothy “Jimmie” Mae Speacht.

Her talents began to show through as Jimmie began attending art classes, learning about and experimenting with a variety of techniques and mixtures of paint colors and textures.

Jimmie preferred painting scenes from photographs provided to her by friends and family members. She resided in Jasper County from 1987-2001.

The Wheatfield Library is proud to display the works of the late Jimmie Mae Speacht during the months of July and August. Parts of her collection consists of scenes painted from family photographs and others are her own design.

If you have an art or photography collection that you would like to share with the public, visit or call the Wheatfield Library at 219 956-3774.
