About the Artist
“My mom always told me I was just like her mother who was ‘slow, artistic, had beautiful skin and had MS.’ Since I was over 50, I was breathing a sigh of relief that I had missed the MS part. Then at 57, in 2002, I was diagnosed with MS. The diagnosis did prompt some major changes in our life, including a move to a more accessible house in a lovely area near Hood Canal, WA. I am 72 now, and I am happy to say, MS has not affected my mobility or dexterity very much.”
