2021 MSAA Art Showcase Entrants
Veronica Gledhill – Upper Chichester, PA
I have been doing artwork all my life and enjoyed working with other artists in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. I loved collaborating in community projects to raise awareness on many social issues of my time. When I was diagnosed with primary progressive MS, I was devasted. Even though I had suspected it for a while one is never really prepared. I attend MS support groups and feel like I can cope with this illness while living my best life. I do not do large canvases anymore but find I can still enjoy smaller works that do not require lower body physical strength. MS downsizes my public art life however editing down can greatly focus me on what is truly important in all areas of my life. Like most people I do the best I can and stay grateful for all the gifts I have.
