Flat-head syndrome, a condition in which part of a baby’s skull has a flat spot is something that can be easily corrected. If caught in time, the remedy is quite simple – with the use of corrective medical helmets. But the issue most of us will have with them is that they’re plain ugly.
That’s where Paula Strawn, an artist from Kennewick, Washington, comes to the rescue. After she was urged by a friend to decorate her granddaughter’s, Paula started painting these medical helmets for others too and has brought a smile to the faces of countless infants and their delighted parents.
