“Remember when we used to sleep? Will we ever sleep the same way again? I need to shut down my brain – stop all the noise. I’m so tired…so much of our world has changed. The small businesses are closed; we can no longer have parties with friends. Will the normalcy of humanity ever return?”

ARTIST BIO: James Conroy, a Cincinnati native, is a retired fire fighter/paramedic. Through his art, he wants to create a language of shared experience and understanding. Painting allows him to process how he is feeling at any given moment and hopefully those with different skills can use his art as an outlet as well. James has no formal art training, so he trusts his instincts along with the love of his favorite works to inspire him and guide him.
