From her home on the shores of Lake Michigan, artist Mary Nohl created a world of whimsical figures, odd sculptures, and brightly-colored oil paintings?many made from ?found? objects that other people might think of as junk, like driftwood, bedsprings, and sand that she made into concrete. With hundreds of sculptures populating her yard, her lake property became known in her later years as ?The Witch?s House.?
