Blog in Two Parts: Contemporary art blog and Coping with Myasthenia Gravis blog from artist and MG patient Susan Hicks.
Interested in better caregiving for those with Myasthenia Gravis (or even yourself)? This disease is better not faced alone, and caregivers may not know what a diagnosed person is going through. It’s an invisible disease that is not very commonly known, so read on for my informative tips on Myasthenia Gravis care. The emphasis of this blog post is general advice in caring for someone with Myasthenia Gravis with minor to medium levels of symptoms written by someone who has the disease themself.
Join me on this exploratory trip down memory lane, with its potholes and traffic jams, by way of a self-portrait art from 1991. This quickly executed scrawl on graphed notebook paper encompassed so much of my life experience in one sentence: It’s taken me 21.5 years of seeing this face to even get this far. “This face.” It’s almost like it was one of multiple faces, or maybe not even my own image.

Welcome to my little expose on my latest abstract landscape painting in acrylics called “Windy Day in Tucker County.” I’ll discuss my ideas and inspiration for the mountain setting windpower theme, materials used, color choices and a new direction in my work that is a return to what I’ve always loved to do. I’ll also touch on creating art as a disabled person.
