2016-17 MSAA MS Ability Art Showcase – AOM January
Marion Carney-Howard – Cleveland, OH
I was DX with MS this past year after a long struggle of misdiagnosis finally all the mysterious illnesses have a name. My neurologist feels I’ve had the disease between 15 and 20 years.
I’m currently a house wife with three sons and three stepchildren for the past year since taken ill. I hope to get back into the work world as a healthcare provider and private investigator so until then I’ve been pouring my heart into my art. I’m 48 years young and love art, music, dance as well swimming. I’m not a professional artist and sometimes surprise myself at my ability. I think I get my artistic flare from my dad who was a professional artist and photographer.
My art reflects my inner being. My submission is a memory I had of my sons playing outside with their friends and how much fun they were having. The medium I use is paint shop pro and polyvore as well acrylics and watercolor.
God bless you all for the many wonderful things you do for the MS community. If there’s one good thing that comes from this illness its all the wonderful caring people as yourselves.
