“Remember when a smile told the stories? The eyes are the story tellers now, but they are scared, confused, and fearful… Remember these days. Are you telling the story you mean to?”

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.
