The Citizen, section B.  Wednesday, January 28, 2004.

Marti Hand, RN, of Creative Interiors By Hand in Peachtree City, has donated this painting to Southern Regional Medical Center.  The impetus for this donation, according to Hand, “is to show my appreciation to the hospital and Janice Johnson, clinical manager of 5T, for their flexibility, support and enthusiasm during my re-entry in the nursing profession.  This canvas is dedicated to all patients, families and visitors of SRMC 5T.  By viewing this painting, I hope it provides a reprieve from pain,suffering and loneliness, even if only for a few moments.”

Marti Hand, of Peachtree City, exhibits “mitochondria encounter” at the Newnan, Coweta art show. This 36” x 48” painting is acrylic on canvas from the synergy series, which focuses on synergistic activities from a scientific perspective.
