January Hooker

January Hooker works on the detailed paintings when she knows Coastside Adult Day Health Center clients will be around to interact with her.

Artist January Hooker walked down the hallway at Coastside Adult Day Health Center in Half Moon Bay, giving a tour of her “Healing Windows,” a collection of 10 petite landscape murals inside painted elliptical window frames.

“I planned a curved window because it’s much more calming than square edges, which makes you feel confined,” said Hooker.

April Seager is a staff writer covering events and endeavors in the Coastside community. She received a master of arts in German literature from Brigham Young University and completed graduate work in German studies at Washington University in St. Louis.
