Its the event of the season….
As many of you know I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s almost 9 years ago. Two years into my diagnosis I by chance stumbled upon digital photographic art and acrylic on canvas. It has become my passion and my therapy.
Please join myself and Dr. Isa (neurologist ) on November 6th 2021 at CityArts Orlando where I debut my solo art exhibition and my first attempt at producing a mini documentary. You will also have the opportunity to hear my journey clinically from Dr. Isa and what my day to day life is like from me. Its a open mic session.
I want to thank you in advance for your ticket purchase and just maybe a purchase of my art. Your purchases will support Advent Health Neuroscience department in finding a cure for Parkinson’s.
Here is a peek of some of my art which will be on exhibit.
Margie Burns. Artist.
Born in Southern Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. Graduated nursing college from Groote Schuur Hospital/University of Cape Town South Africa.
1993-2020: VP/SM Macy’s.
2020-present: Retired. Full time Artist and Parkinson’s Research Advocate.
I am a self taught artist in both Acyclic on Canvas and Photographic Digital art.
2012 at the age of 55 I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. A Progressive Neurological Disease which effect uncontrolled movement and many other symptoms. Each PD person have a different set of symptoms. Parkinson’s is progressive and has no cure (yet).
I began my Art journey about 2years into my diagnosis. Art has become my therapy and passion. It calms my mind and body…it is also the fuel that ignites and excites the reasons why I was given Parkinson’s. I do not suffer from Parkinson’s..I believe its made me a better person. Its made me an Artist.
Time is valuable….I intent to continue experiencing Art and use my Parkinson’s & Art journey for research purposes in finding a cure.
Parkinson’s is not a death sentence. You just have to find a way to live differently and value and enjoy the journey.
