Leidy Burgos – March 2024 Artist of the Month

MSAA features the work of many talented artists affected by multiple sclerosis as part of our annual MSAA Art Showcase. Each month we share these artists’ inspiring stories and beautiful artwork with you as our Artist of the Month. This month, we celebrate Leidy Burgos as March’s Artist of the Month. Leidy is from Philadelphia, PA.

“Waves of the Mind”

About the Artist – Leidy Burgos:

“I am an artist and mother from Philadelphia, PA. My love of art stemmed from a tough life and a means to free my mind. I’m Leidy Burgos, and I embrace what is around me and take it to canvas, paper, or even a piece of cardboard lying around. With pencil in hand or whatever medium is available, art helps me get away from the tough world and helps me speak at a different level besides using words or tears from suffering that comes with having MS. After being diagnosed, I used my abilities to outweigh my disabilities and show that the harder life hit, the more I wanted to hit back with color! Because art is freeing.”

To learn more about Leidy and the rest of our artists, please visit our Art Showcase.
