She has received the Maine State Award from the Maine Arts Commission, the Deborah Morton Award from Westbrook College, honorary doctorates from the University of Maine and Colby College, a Women of Achievement Award from Westbrook College, and a Living Legacy Award from the Central Maine Area Agency on Aging. In addition to being a successful painter, Ipcar has illustrated more than thirty children's books, many of which she also wrote, and she has written four novels. Now in her nineties, she still paints every day at her home in Georgetown, Maine.
