Inspiring book and I was happy to discover some favorite artists amongst the mix. I'm a true believer in the power of art as a healing tool having experienced it myself. Great uplifting read.

It is so inspiring! These artists have such a wonderful attitude about sharing art and helping people enjoy creating their own art.
