2017-18 MSAA MS Ability Art Showcase – AOM February
Sharon Goodwin – Fort Worth, TX
The first time I realized I had passion for art was when I made a pastel drawing of a horse at 11 years old. Since then I’ve dabbled in woodworking, painting, cake decorating, drawing, sculpture and crocheting. I pursued my Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art and spent 15 years working with clients in Art Therapy at a local community MH center. Over the years though, I’ve gotten away from participating in my own creative activities due to working full time, being Mom to my 2 wonderful boys and trying to cope with confusing symptoms. After finally being diagnosed with MS in 2016, I realized my physical and cognitive abilities weren’t the same as they used to be. I started feeling a creative longing but didn’t have much motivation or know where to begin. A little inspiration from my husband this year reignited my passion once again. Thanks honey!
