A friend recently introduced the idea of art as therapy, and a proposal that I submit some lino prints to the great cause known as Art In Healthcare. This UK-based organization just recently accepted two of my submissions: December January II.
As someone who has spent time in hospitals, I appreciate the value and therapy that improves the quality of life to patients, staff and visitors in our Health Care systems. I feel privileged to be accepted as a contributing artist and hope that this will be the beginning of a lifelong act of gratitude that will bring joy to patients who need it and gratitude to hospital staff for the great work they do.
