Essay:

I was an artist before I developed PD. Once diagnosed it took several years to get my confidence back but once I did, drawing became a passion and I draw every day. My work has changed; I use stronger colors and will draw just about anything. I use color pencils and pastels.

I run a Painting with Parkinson group once a week and there have been some amazing examples of the power of creativity giving people with PD increased confidence and self-esteem and a new outlook on life.
