Into the Woods Spotlight: Shefali O’Hara

Shefali O’Hara is an artist, writer and teacher as well as a type IV cancer conqueror who was given 6 months to live 15 years ago. She prefers the word conqueror to survivor when she thinks of herself. Her art can be viewed online at Facebook:Austinlace and in person at the Framer’s Gallery in Georgetown. She teaches “Resilience and Joy”, an art class for those dealing with cancer, depression and other types of trauma. To sign up for a class, to purchase her art or signed prints, or to commission a special painting, contact her at shefali.ohara@gmail.com.

This evening, Shefali will share her story of finding a new path in life in her piece Resilience and Joy.
