Each year, MSAA features the work of artists affected by multiple sclerosis in the annual MS Ability and Four Seasons Art Showcases, including highlighting one artist each month as our MS Artist of the Month. This month, we are proud to feature Natalie Shumylo of West Allis, WI:
About the Artist
“I am an artist from upstate New York that just happens to have been diagnosed with RRMS at the age of 17. MS is just a small facet of my being.
I tend to concentrate on the obscured and or hidden cross section of society and shed a little light on the unspoken and underrepresented aspects of society that I feel I am a part of. My work tends to have a very dark under tone at first glance, but when that viewer takes time to ‘listen to the story’ I am trying to tell on the canvas, the darkness gets a little brighter.”
