About the Artist
Erin McDonald grew up in a loving adventurous family in Hopkins, MN. She was an athletic, active world traveler. When she was 31, Erin was diagnosed with RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy). Her mobility was limited, and the intensity of her pain grew. Three years ago, she experienced a Brain Injury. The impact drastically reduced her independence. Erin now needs significant support from family, friends, and service providers. Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital’s INSPIRE Camera Club has opened Erin’s world to art. Photography allows her to both appreciate art and get to make it.
