I am Edith Cope's grandson. She was born Edith Nattrass and married Fred Joslin who died after Fern and Victor were born. She eventually married Ben Cope and taught school. Her work with handicapped students in Costa Mesa led her to experiment with fingerpainting to help the students. This led to years of exhibits at Laguna Arts Festival. I Have dozens of her paintings, large & small.
