Things That Are Round

Winter 2005 - Volume 9 Number 1

Things That Are Round

"Things That Are Round"
by Marsha Balian, NP, is an acrylic on canvas. Ms Balian is self-taught and loves to
use highly saturated color. She feels her work can be occasionally confrontational
but always has a humorous edge. She is increasingly aware of how the issue of
family plays into our lives, not just as it has impacted our pasts but how each of us
weaves the desire for family (traditional or not) or connection with the world into the
fabric of our lives. This concept leads her as a Nurse Practitioner to a continued focus on
the lives of women and children as the subject of her art.
 
Ms Balian is a Nurse Practitioner in the Ob/Gyn Department at the Oakland
Medical Center in California.
