Local artist Christianna Soumakis has recently completed a series of murals in the Alzheimer’s unit at St. Johnland Nursing Center.
Soumakis is a graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and paints fine art, murals and legacy portraits. Her work has been featured at galleries here and in New York City and at other healthcare facilities.
In a statement Soumakis said her goal in the St. Johnland project has been “to provide a series of snapshots from a well lived. It is my hope that the residents find themselves surrounded not only by bright color and whimsical images, but scenes imbed with a sense of serenity and joy.”
