About the Artist

“When I was 26 years old, was when I first heard the words multiple sclerosis from an optician. I still didn’t paint again until like 8 years ago when I started attending an unstructured painting class, just to get me started again and see if I could paint again. I still go when I can and have met many good friends there.”
