Sue Lawrence-Reeder – August 2023 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 Sue Lawrence-Reeder as the August Artist of the Month. Sue is from Monmouth, ME.

The Bay Bridge

“Diagnosed at age 30, I never imagined I would be living my best life at 71; still on my feet and continuing to do what I love. My battle with MS has had its long challenging times but it has also provided me with the opportunity to explore four different career paths, all in an effort to stay one step ahead of disability and proving when one door closes, another opens.  Living in Maine, artists are surrounded by the artistry of nature; from her rugged coastline, her million acres of lakes, to her miles of pine tree forests. I consider myself blessed to be living in the midst of such beauty and inspiration.”
