2016 MSAA MS Ability Art Showcase Artist of the Month
Dani Red Hawk – Greenville, SC
I am now almost 58 years old living with MS. I suffer with a lot of pain and try not to talk about it too much because people do not understand, if you look fine they can’t see what all is going on inside. I make myself work and stay busy which is so very hard with the MS. I am a go getter so I won’t let it get me down. I started painting not too long after I was diagnosed for kind of therapy. Even though my hands are quite numb, painting takes my mind off of everything else and so I seem to be at a little peace when painting. I owe it to my daughter for getting me started into painting and art in general. I believe everyone should try some kind of art and find out how relaxing and enjoyable it can be.
