About the Artist:
“Twelve years into my MS diagnosis, my daily health challenges made writing, my former profession, practically impossible.
Unable to hold a paintbrush due to the MS, I created my own way of painting, using only my fingers and knuckles on top of and also from underneath the canvas. Crouched over the canvas, covered in paint, lost in the music and the painting that’s evolving – everything else disappears. All my pain, frustration and physical issues dissolve away into beauty and the freedom painting provides me with.”
