Whimsical Watercolor by Mara Cohen and Soy Candles by Light is Love

Fri June 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Mara has been a professional tattoo artist since 2002. She never painted on anything other than the human body until 2022, the year her mother’s illness advanced. It was during her care with dementia that “watercolor” came into her life.

“In tattoo art, wherever I place my needle is exactly where the color is deposited.  I can control my design with exact precision as needed.  In watercolor, I cannot.   Wherever I place the paint and water on my paper, the paint will run and spread, turning a well-planned flower into an unplanned waterfall!  I learned to accept that I was not in control, and allowed the water to help me in my creation.  All of the unplanned smudges, merging colors, random light, and shadowy spaces add to the beauty of my paintings.  As my mother was declining, I could not control her situation. The only thing I could do was make her comfortable.  I had to let go… Watercolor taught me that.” It gives me great joy and peace creating whimsical images of nature and botanicals.

Jayne Hopkins of Light is Love Candles will be also joining us! She specializes in making 100% soy candles using safe and toxin-free fragrances. Phthalate free fragrances and without dye so they compliment any home decor.  Allergy and headache sufferers have finally found a candle-line they can enjoy!
