A Village in Normandy

What a beauty this one is.
Written and illustrated by Laurence (1968, Bobbs-Merrill Company).

The only information I can find on her is inside the book jacket below a small b+w image of her with a string of pearls around her neck, seated at her desk, paint brushes in a cup to her right and pencil in hand:
