Welcome to Peppermint & Paint!

My name is Liz and I’m an artist, healthcare researcher, and health enthusiast. I’m particularly interested in how art and health intersect, as well as their impact on overall well-being. Creating art has given me the freedom to express parts of me that I can’t put into words. Caring for and learning to heal myself with food and exercise (that I actually enjoy) gives me strength. This wasn’t some easy conclusion to come to and I still find myself questioning and searching for what my real purpose is here on Earth, on a daily basis. This is difficult and permanent work. And let’s face it, none of us are perfect… we are perfectly imperfect. But sharing my experience is the only way I know how to contribute… so here we are! I hope you stay a while. I hope you learn something. And I hope you teach me something too!
