About the Author:

Dahlov Ipcar was born in 1917, daughter of the artists Marguerite and William Zorach. In 1923, the family bought a farm in Robinhood Village, near Georgetown, Maine, where Ipcar continues to live today, still creating joyous and compelling words. Although educated at progressive New York City schools and Oberlin College, Ipcar was essentially self-taught as an artist. She considers herself an artist first, and then a writer, and is best known for her colorful, kaleidoscopic paintings of the jungle and other natural scenes.


Ipcar has published dozens of illustrated children's books, and several fantasy books for young adults, including A Dark Horn Blowing and The Queen of Spells. Some of her better-known children's books include Lobsterman (a Maine favorite), One Horse Farm, Calico Jungle, A Flood of Creatures, and Brown Cow Farm: A Counting Book. Long-time supporters of the arts in Maine, Ipcar and her husband received the Maine State Award from the Maine Commission of Arts and Humanities in 1972. Ipcar has also received honorary degrees from the University of Maine, Colby, and Bates College, as well as the Deborah Morton Award from Westbrook College in 1978. In 1986 she received the Living Legacy Award from the Central Maine Area Agency on the Aging, and in 1998 she was honored with the prestigious Kerlan Award for her children's books.


The Ipcars have chosen to live out of the mainstream, but have always made their home open to the artist community, and raised two sons, Robert and Charlie. A major retrospective of Ipcar's work was held at the Portland Museum of Art in October 6, 2001- January 27, 2002, concurrent with a retrospective of her parents' artwork.
