106. Lynne Kells - My MS Fingerprint - Acrylic on Canvas
24" x 24"
This is my fingerprint. Like fingerprints, every person with MS is individual, no two are the same. We are joined by a diagnosis but like every individual’s fingerprint we are all unique. Each has different symptoms, different responses and different needs. It is a challenge for all. Experiencing pins and needles in my hands was one of the first symptoms I regularly encountered. As an aspiring artist I have had to adjust to losing sensation in my hands. In common with all others I have had to learn to alter my techniques, my lifestyle, my capabilities, to learn to build on what I can do and not dwell on the maybes of what the future may bring. To get past the grey and do my best to spend my days in ‘full colour’.
