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 Leslie Pino Durant of Jemez Springs, NM:
About the Artist
“When I was diagnosed with MS, my life was difficult to manage. I didn’t have a place to go to quiet my mind and body. So I picked up an art journal and a paintbrush and with the help of online art teachers and lots of practice, I learned to paint. I now have a place to go to that helps me get through fatigue, brain fog, and difficult days. Most importantly, I am proud to finally call myself an artist.”
