About the Artist
“I was diagnosed with RRMS in 2001. I’m not perfect. I have rough days. I cry. I get angry. But then, I pick up a paint brush and I start to create whatever I am feeling. I get lost in a beautiful world of lines and shades and colors. The creation of something visually beautiful helps me to refocus on the fact that I am so much more than my MS.
It’s my dream to change lives through my paintings and what better way to do so but to reach out to those suffering from MS and the myriad of other diseases people battle every day. If I can bring just one moment of joy or hope to one who is hurting, then, my mission is complete.”
