Waterville student’s portrait selected for screen saver

In today’s, February 21, 2012 edition of the Morning Sentinel, writer Erin Rhoda captured the story of Waterville High School artist Margaret Robe. Margaret’s self-portrait was selected as one of the 20 screen savers that will go on the 72,000 MLTI laptops for 2012-13.

I didn’t realize when I saw the photo of the image that the artwork is 7 feet by 4 feet in size. Pretty amazing! For the past five years Margaret has had chronic pain disorder reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome. She created the self-portrait to communicate and help make others become aware of the disorder.
