2016 MSAA MS Ability Art Showcase – AOM September


Karen Bloom – Kendallville, IN

I was diagnosed with MS in 2008 and was a paraplegic within a year.  Because my legs were affected so drastically, I expected the same of my arms/hands and sold my piano and gave away all of my oil painting supplies and most of the artwork I loved.  I received a service dog a year ago and began venturing back out into the world – and taking risks, including trying painting again.  It turns out I should not have given up on my artwork for over six years.  My hands are still mine!
