Eva Salyer remembers having experienced some major stress as a child. When things got tough, her mom would hand her some art supplies and advise her to draw how she felt. Now Eva is a full-time artist in South Lake Tahoe, where she does, among many other projects, live paintings at concerts—including the George Clinton show this past summer.
