Anita White is an artist whom I first encountered several years ago while working locum tenens at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, MN. I was so impressed with her work that I commissioned her for the cover of my latest book, "The Locum Life: A Physician's Guide to Locum Tenens." 

Anita began drawing daily while still a teenager. When her husband Josh developed a chronic illness requiring frequent trips to the hospital, she chronicled these visits in her sketchbook. Anita discovered that she could "draw my way through difficult situations" and helped her cope with the stress of her husband's deteriorating physical health. Even after her husband's death, Anita has continued to return to the hospital to draw. During our interview, Anita walks us through six fascinating pieces of her work.
