Esther Pearlman feels the need to express herself in the arts. Being an artist allows her to communicate her thoughts and feelings. She likes the feel of the paint and uses a variety of materials to create her work. She uses brushes, found objects, paper and even her feet. She uses colors that correlate to how she is feeling. Artists such as Van Gogh, Gauguin, Picasso, Pollack, Hockney and Wadl inspire her. Esther is key in finding local talent to be our guest speakers at lectures.
