Each year, MSAA features the work of artists affected by multiple sclerosis in our annual MSAA Art Showcase. We also highlight one artist each month as our Artist of the Month. This month, we are proud to feature artist Jennifer Reida of Swansea, IL:
About the Artist
“I am a Native American Artist who lives with MS. Through my diagnosis in 2013, I have learned to be flexible with the mediums that I use in my art.
I am currently on a journey of discovering more about my Native American heritage which is playing a large role in my work. I depict strong Native American women from the Cherokee Nation, due to its matriarchal society, and because there are many beautifully strong women in my life who deserve to be honored. There is a little piece of each of them in all of my work.”
