Character Study: Her Creative Exuberance Has No Limits

Now this widow with waning strength has resumed the quest, and is more productive and ambitious than ever, working all day, every day.
“I was always driven,” she said. “I can’t sleep if I don’t do my artwork.”
For evidence of this obsession, let us now enter a four-bedroom house in Maplewood, N.J., where Ms. Wint, 85, lived for the past 30 years.

Even after months of neatening by her son Ted Wint, the house is still so crowded with prints, canvases and sculptures that one can move through it only in narrow walkways.
