Artist Statement

"In my painting, the stranger, feeling alone and isolated, is welcomed and embraced by the multicultural community." - Margaret Waisman

I'm an amateur artist, but creating this work was a joy. I inherited my artistic ability from my father, who was art editor of all his student publications. I have painted since childhood but have never displayed any of my art publicly. When I'm not painting or reading or traveling, I'm a dermatologist, a career in which artistry comes in handy.
