Georgia Totto O'Keeffe (November 15, 1887 – March 6, 1986) was an American artist. Born near Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, O'Keeffe first came to the attention of the New York art community in 1916, several decades before women had gained access to art training in America’s colleges and universities. "I know now that most people are so closely concerned with themselves that they are not aware of their own individuality, I can see myself, and it has helped me to say what I want to say in paint."
Georgia O'Keeffe quote: I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life - and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do. The artist's biography: http://www.okeeffemuseum.org/about-georgia-okeeffe.html
