Ms. Isaacs Morell realized she was an artist in 1995 when, for the first time since high school, she enrolled in a drawing class at the Westmount Visual Arts Center. “From the first grade, I felt a release of inner tension, allowing a de facto rare experience of freedom of expression, the likes of which I had never known before,” she says.
Since then, Ms. Isaacs Morell has attended numerous visual arts courses and participated in numerous exhibitions. “Art reminds me that I can focus my attention on beauty and thus create beautiful canvases, bringing joy to other individuals.”
