Since College, the majority of my work has been commission based. My life changed dramatically in 2010, when I was diagnosed with MS. In 2011 my husband and I decided to move to Nova Scotia to be closer to family and medical support.
The support I received has enabled me to regain the use of my hands. Now I could paint, draw and experiment once again.
I rediscovered the palette knife. It had been ages since I had used this tool. The abstract style and loose lines allowed me to express myself more freely. I could work with the spasms of my hands.
I stopped trying to control the tool and instead let my hands create the art.
