Georgia O’Keeffe was born in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin in 1887 and died in 1986.  Georgia O’Keeffe was an American painter who painted using abstract shapes and bright colors. She loved nature, and used simple shapes and bold colors to express her feelings about the importance of the earth and growing things. When painting objects from nature, she focused on a small part of the object, rather than the entire object, and painted it big so that people would notice the details and appreciate them the way she did. Her distinctive style made her one of the most influential women artists of the 20th century.
