Connie Williams, Western Colorado Wonder Woman
Apples, Art, and the Apple Shed.
[March 2020. San Juan Silver Stage] Cedaedge,Colorado. From the time she was a small child—drawing on her grandfather’s bald head (with consequences) until this moment, when she is wielding a paintbrush—Connie Williams’ heart is in her art.I n grade school, some of her artwork was selected for an art exchange with European schools. In 7th grade, she won the National Poster Contest. While she was making art and winning art awards, Williams was also riding horses, which she loved to paint, too. She learned to train and ride them, and wound up a rodeo queen. Art continued through college. Then came the Apple Shed, all 28,000 square feet of it which she turned into a gallery, deli, and recently, wine store and tasting room. [story]
Most recently, she;s opened another Apple Shed in Texas… but that’s another story.
