From "The Future of the Past" Series
"Woodhull is inspired by the first woman to run for president named Victoria Woodhull. A pioneer of her time, she was a person who actively contributed and laid a foundation for others like herself to have a voice at the political level. The background is to represent the many colors used and the many voices experienced and represented in making all voices heard in the voting right experience. The quotes written are things Woodhull said in her election campaigning process which this artist found moving and profound. He hopes that this piece will remind the view of the foundation laid with voting rights while echoing the truths that everyone deserves the right to participate in the election process."

Lou Lim is a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) and registered expressive arts therapist (REAT). A graduate of Lesley University's expressive therapy program from 2008, Lou’s creative lens parallels his professional/clinical practice. A goal in his art-making is to remind the viewer that they are of worth and value and that regardless of where life takes you, that one’s story is always being written. This theme of second chances comes about in Lou’s process commonly through the use of repurposed materials and supplies. His experience in visual art includes acrylic, watercolor, collage, and mix media approaches. He also is an avid musician and performer. He makes art as a way to express himself personally, emotionally, and relationally.
