Not an artist, a rosemaler


Mary Hardwick of Crosslake claims not to be an artist, even as she sits surrounded by many of her works in the Norwegian painting style known as Rosemaling.

“I’m not an artist, I’m a Rosemaler,” Mary said.

Mary’s background, in fact, is more mathematically inclined.

She was a junior high math teacher in Richfield when she married her husband, Alden, who was an engineer. They had three boys while they lived and worked in small farming communities.
