Each year, we feature the work of artists affected by multiple sclerosis in our annual MSAA Art Showcase, including highlighting one artist each month as our Artist of the Month. This month, we are proud to feature artist Hannah Garrison of San Antonio, TX:
About the Artist
“Multiple sclerosis has a way of “gifting” us unwanted surprises. I was bequeathed numerous problems, including mild motor function problems in my hands, visual impairments, depression/anxiety, and worst of all – cognitive impairments. I have spent all my time since then trying to slowly regain what skills I’ve had. What I have lost in technical skills and drawing and the required mental focus, I have gained even more of in an appreciation for the shapes and the colors that keep me sane.”
