How long have you been involved with this art process at Baptist Housing?

I have been doing floral art for over 6 years here at Shannon Oaks. I started as soon as I moved in.

Art Talk | Darlaine

Our Featured Artist is Darlaine.

Who do you enjoy sharing or making art with?

I have enjoyed playing piano in Baptist Housing Communities since the 1980s but I play for anyone.

Why do you like being an artist?

Singing or playing the piano is giving, it's an opportunity to enjoy a moment with others. Music is creating and I never play the same composition in the same way twice.

Who first inspired or taught you this craft?
