Essay:

I was diagnosed with PD in 2002. When I returned to painting, I found that there was great therapeutic value in that activity, although there was a significant change required in my approach. The resulting work would never have occurred without PD.

This new approach not only was therapy but an exciting creative opportunity.

My physical appearance affected by Parkinsonís has improved and has become more animated. These improvements are important in social activities and contribute to higher self-esteem.

Creative activity benefits everybody.
