Versea Bourdaghs (1941-2008) was a Minnesota artist
whose works explored themes of spirituality, hope, and
dreams.  Although she had a lifelong interest in
creating art, she began pursuing it seriously in the
1990s, when she was in her fifties. She first produced a
series of collages in somber colors, but after a 1997 trip
to Guatemala she changed to watercolors, and her
works exploded with vivid colors.
