Marj's teacher would read a story, then ask the class to illustrate it. The story involved a little girl, a kite and high winds. In her picture, Marj had the wind blowing the girl's dress. Miss Barkley looked at it and said "You will grow up to be an artist". In grade 2, Marj won a cash prize at the Calgary for an elephant she made and coloured out of corrigated card board. So that sealed it. When she grew up, Marj Vetter married a farmer in the Three Hills, Alberta area. She took up art again, most of her shows have been at the Red Deer and District Museum, in Red Deer, Alberta. Some of her mentors have been Donna MacLean, Paul Braid, Doug Barry, Robert Carmicheal, Harry Savage, Harry Wolfarth and Joe Abbrescia. Marj Vetter continues to enjoy the process, and her artist friends, who for the most part are very supportive.
