About the Artist
Multiple sclerosis has been a part of my life for 35+ years. I have adjusted to changes in both my physical and mental health as MS affected my fine motor skills and my vision, and left me wheelchair-bound. My companion is my love of art, something MS did not and will not take from me. Tremors developed in my natural right hand and It took years to teach and control my unnatural left hand to do what my right hand could accomplish before the MS progression, the result my watercolors appear not as finely detailed but are loose and free. A new style of painting was created that has an abstract look, and I am pleased with it. On a tedious day fatigue can sap my energy, the type of day I am having physically is reflected in my paintings. I listen to classical music when I am painting, and often paint musicians. I see beauty in people and everyday events, and I am most comfortable capturing a painting of everyday life. I am a Graduate of School of Visual Arts,NYC.
