This fall, an emerging talent in the art world–and a woman with epilepsy–will have a solo exibition in Philadelphia.
Cathy Hozack on being an artist
“I’ve had epilepsy since I was five. The seizures and strong medications made me tired, confused, depressed and out of touch with reality. Over time, parts of my memory have gotten worse, but I can concentrate when using watercolors. I pick up a brush and the problems no longer matter. What I learned in Color Theory class is ingrained in my mind forever – but I have forgotten your name already.
I express my strongest feelings on paper and canvas. How I record the world around me depends on my mood and on what is going through my mind. I want to show everyone how I see the world around us.”- Cathy Hozack, October 2008
