Cristina Powell

“I like to reach out to people, especially in hospitals and the medical community, with my main focus on bringing comfort to those suffering from chronic pain and illness. I do this through my art, a kind hello and a gentle smile with patients, their families, friends and staff. This makes me feel good and people say it gives them hope and inspiration. I’m very thankful and proud of what I can do.”
