For over 12 years, I've had the privilege and joy of collaborating with an extraordinary woman. Mary came into my life through a recommendation from another art teacher in Zurich. Following a life-altering brain hemorrhage in her early 40's, Mary was forced to relearn fundamental daily tasks, and transition away from her career as an accountant.

Drawing upon my background as an educator experienced in working with individuals with diverse needs, Mary and I embarked on a journey to craft a specialized art curriculum tailored to her unique abilities and challenges. Witnessing Mary's dedication and passion, I am immensely proud to have guided her into the rich realm of artistry. She has become not just an inspirational student, but a shining example of resilience and creativity.
