I’m Jana Hubbs. I started adult life as a cosmetologist, but physical limitations interfered after 20 years, so I went back to college and became an English teacher. I had spent several years as a high school youth leader at FCC and had every intention of teaching high school because I loved them so much. I did that for a year but life threw me into the lion’s den: junior high. It is there that I finally knew I was where I was supposed to be. I’ve been entertained by 7th and 8th graders at Nauvoo-Colusa Junior High ever since.
One of my earliest memories was assembling faces from patterns in flooring, wall paper,
ceilings, even dust. Therefore, I wanted to draw or shape them and give them form. To
this day I see unplanned shapes or faces within my intended subject and/or
backgrounds. I believe that arts are a form of praise and acknowledgment of God, who
creates. I believe in helping others recognize their creative gifts, whatever that might be.
Anita lives and works creatively in Fort Madison, after a long absence from the area.
Moving back in December 2022, there is a list that she and husband Larry are tackling,
for a sculpture garden, studios, wine & coffee cellar, in their home. Also a member of
FMAAA she hopes to get more involved soon.
