Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Malcah Zeldis is a celebrated  folk artist with paintings in museums all over the country.She has always used painting as means of self expression, but severe hip pain left her unable to sit for long periods of time. Malcah began to discover creative inspiration in the many colorful pieces of clothing she had collected and found in thrift stores over the years. Dressing became her new form of expression and healing. Watch the video above to hear Malcah's inspiring story in her own words.(I am happy to say that Malcah is feeling much better now and has returned to creating her amazing works of art.)
