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 Kim Standard of Douglasville, GA:
About the Artist
“I was diagnosed officially in 1982. I was 19 when an eye doctor said it was likely MS, but it went away for a few years.
I started painting again after 39 years; my right hand is damaged by MS and many other parts. I use a power chair mostly so I didn’t think I could paint anymore since high school. I started taking classes at our Douglasville Senior Center. I am ambidextrous now, my left hand paints 75% of these acrylic paintings. Don’t give up, you never know what the future holds…”
