Regina Holliday lost her husband of 25 years in a rapid 11 week battle in 2009, She painted her grief over the loss of her childhood sweet-heart, father of two boys, and frustrations of the struggle for care.  The series of murals in Washington DC became part of the national debate on health care reform and helped guide public policy.   

Her grief turned to advocacy and into an international movement.  She founded The Walking Gallery of Healthcare, painting the jackets of other health advocates with their personal stories. While speaking at international conferences, she paints as a part of the message. With the tools of technology and social media- she pushes for transparency, partnership, change.  As a mother she juggles raising two sons, the oldest on the Autistic Spectrum.

Throughout her work  is always the story- hers, those she has changed through their jackets, hundreds of thousands who have heard her speak, millions impacted by her work. She returns to the power of the individual story- one voice, one story, one person- each broken in their own way, yet empowered to use that voice to make a difference. An unbelievable chance to know Regina behind the easel, podium or spotlight at the White House.
