Story and artwork from Mary O’Donnell
My name is Mary O’Donnell and I am a special education English teacher. Two years ago, I lost my beloved aunt that was like a mother to me, then I lost vision in my left eye. I was at a loss for what to do in order to move past the hardest time of my life. I thought about my aunt who loved to paint, and in her memory, I began to paint and draw in order to strengthen my remaining eye. I fell in love with art, and have been teaching myself how to draw and paint ever since. It has been such a fun journey, but there are challenges when trying to teach myself drawing.
