Our featured artist for July is Ann P.

 Here's a little bit about the artist, in her own words:


'Hi, my name is Ann P.  I was a critical care Registered Nurse for five years before having to leave the field in 2008, due to PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).  In November of 2008 I began doing art or the first time in my life.  I am amazed at how my ability to blend colors and capture images has progressed over the last couple of years.  I love using my poetry and inspirational sayings in my projects.  My favorite painting that I have made over and over is my puzzle pieces with 'RELAX' written in the corner. 

My art is completely self-taught and is inspired by my moods and my attempt to self-soothe.  I am doing much better with my diagnosis and now think of how I can help others through my art.  It makes my day when someone can connect with my artwork and can apply what I have done to their own personal experiences.'


The Artists of Heartside Gallery and Studio is a monthly feature to highlight some of the wonderful people of the Heartside neighborhood.  Visit www.heartside.orgFacebook and our Flickr page to keep up with us, to learn about volunteering and other ways to get involved.
