She was a painter, a sculptor, and loved driving her MG all around the streets of Pasadena. Her grandson told that she loved the song The Little Old lady from Pasadena By the Beach Boys and that she was Just sure it was written about her! Her logo gives a clue to some of the work that is rarer. She lived in Pasadena California in the early 1960s when she began sculpting with a material known as Extone. It is comparable with the chalkware but according to her grandson, this was a material her husband Allen had developed for his work in aerospace. It is comprised of plaster of Paris, latex paint, and white glue, and perhaps a little sand. He used it for aerospace patterns, Allen Hood oversaw quality control for the Apollo 15 Command Module for North America/Rockwell.
