About the Artist

photo of Tova by Liz McEachern HallI am an artist, art therapist, art educator, and arts consultant based at Gorse Mill Studios in Needham, MA. I am constantly involved in working on a number of projects including teaching art classes, consulting with community organizations, and engaging various communities in creating murals. I work with people of all ages and abilities, in a range of settings, and utilizing a number of different modalities and materials. I have led collaborative art experiences for over 40 organizations including Pfizer, the Boys and Girls Club, Jewish Children and Family Services, Camp Ramah of New England, the Massachusetts Department of Youth Services, and the Justice Resource Institute, among others. My work has been exhibited in local businesses, independent galleries, and Open Studios since 2003; and my mural projects have been empowering communities since 2005 both in the greater Boston area and internationally in Argentina, China, Panama, and Israel. 

I also have a private practice offering art therapy and mental health counseling services based in Needham, MA, information for which can be found by clicking here.

I welcome any comments and/or inquiries about my work and would really appreciate any donations of scrap wood that you might otherwise think to throw away.
