Keith Messina – Mesa, AZ

I was an artist before my diagnosis in 1997, and I still am. I do not let my MS define me, it may shape my physical abilities and make me think outside the box to create a piece, or it may make even help me look more inward for meaning, but either way it doesn’t change who I am or the artist I am meant to be. As a person who has MS I am however a little fish in a deep blue sea of artists without MS.

Medium: Acrylic on canvas 24 x 32.
