Meet Marilyn… Our August Art from the Heart Artist

Gayle Farman

Marilyn Banach, 84, is our August "Art from the Heart” artist.  She has been a resident of Absolut Care of Aurora Park since her stroke.  Marilyn was inspired by her two wonderful high school art teachers.  “After my stroke, I couldn’t believe I could relearn to paint using the two useful fingers on my right hand,” Marilyn said.  What she most enjoys is deciding what she is going to paint, and keeping up with the request from friends and family.    

A minute of your time, and a small contribution… will help us deliver this person-centered slide show to honor more artists like Marilyn.
