The President of the Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals Inc met with me for a project while I was studying abroad, and not only was she very helpful and insightful, but I learned so much about the foundation and about the benefits of art in the healing process. This foundation does amazing things and I was very excited to be able to meet with her and talk about her job and the foundation.

I recently heard a presentation about this foundation and thought it was truly inspiring! Hospital rooms can be a lonely and sad place for patients and their families. This foundation seeks to correct that by placing beautiful pictures taken around the world in hospital rooms and hallways. An amazing idea and way to brighten people's days that may otherwise have little to smile about.

It is an honor to be a contributing photographer to Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals. Patients and their family often feel nervous, vulnerable, and uncomfortable in hospitals. The sterile environment is cold and uninviting. Nature art allows the patient to escape momentarily, and brings a sense of calm and comfort. As a patient and a family member of a patient, I can attest that beautiful nature art is a much appreciated feature in a hospital. It brings me much personal satisfaction to contribute this wonderful cause. My hope is that one day my art will bring a sense of comfort to someone in a hospital. The concept of this Foundation is novel, and important to hospital patients worldwide.

Elaine the president and curator of the Foundation is fabulous. She was quick to respond to my emails, and she works tirelessly to support the Foundation. My entire experience with this organization was positive, and I would recommend working with the Foundation to both photographers and hospitals.

The work done by this foundation is amazing, they bring joy to the sick and people sometimes tend to forget that they deserve to be as happy as they can and the possibility provided by the Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals can make them forget their pain while they look at the photos. My experience (as a contributing photographer) with them was nothing less then spectacular! Kudos for their work!

Know that one of my images so 'as those of many other artists in the world can give a smile to those who are ill is something that fills me with pride.
A great compliment to Elaine Poggi and the founding Healing photo art, 'it was great to talk with her and I am grateful for the interest in my work.
