‘My goal is to inspire people's lives’: Speed painter helps kick off Women's History Month

Posted: Updated:

A speed painter helped kick off Women's History Month in Monmouth County with a presentation that blended music and painting.

Tom Varano performed his "Emotion Into Art" presentation Tuesday.

During his visit to Brookdale Community College, Varano painted historical female figures in a matter of minutes.

"For me, the paintings are secondary,” says Varano. “I'm here to use the microphone. My goal is to inspire people's lives, to go all in, and live with passion, exactly like the people that I paint."

Varano was also at the community college last year for Black History Month.
