Local nurse is painting it forward

Mary Larson is a nurse, caring for people at Harborview's Pioneer Square Clinic. Many of her patient's lives have been touched by homelessness.

When her "day job" ends, Mary begins her other work-- as an artist. In her free time she paints portraits of her patients, capturing their personalities in bold strokes and bright colors. Instead of selling the works of art for money, she exchanges the portraits for items to help her patients and the community.
