2020 MSAA Art Showcase Artist of the Month

Kim Standard – Douglasville, GA

I was diagnosed officially in 1982. I was 19 when an eye doctor said it was likely MS, but it went away for a few years.I married and had 2 wonderful children when the doctors weren’t sure I should. I don’t know how I raised them, one day at a time I guess.

I started painting again after 39 years, my right hand is damaged by MS and many other parts. I use a power chair mostly so I didn’t think I could paint anymore since high school. I started taking classes at our Douglasville Senior Center. I am ambidextrous now, my left hand paints 75% of these acrylic paintings. Don’t give up, you never know what the future holds….
