About the Artist

Hi, I’m Aida and I’m an Artist :) It took me a long time to embrace the ‘Artist’ label but now I know this is who I am – I’m Aida and I’m an Artist :) I’m an Artist because I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. The darker the shadow the brighter the light…..My Rheumatoid Arthritis is my shadow. My art is my light.

About the Artist

Hi, I’m Aida and I’m an Artist :) It took me a long time to embrace the ‘Artist’ label but now I know this is who I am – I’m Aida and I’m an Artist :) I’m an Artist because I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. The darker the shadow the brighter the light…..My Rheumatoid Arthritis is my shadow. My art is my light.

When I was 20 years old I was diagnosed with my shadow and, subsequently, semi paralyzed for 5 years. I was bed bound. Life had literally dealt me a bad hand – I had irreparable damage to both of my hands – and left me down, desperate, and depressed. When I was in this place I asked myself ‘what would I do today if today was my last day’? The answer was painting, so guess what, I painted! However, I didn’t paint with paint brushes, I painted only with my hands. Why? To demonstrate to myself and to the world that I am not damaged and this dysmorphia will not define me. I have never and will never pick up a paint brush. My hands are all I need. I love my hands now. One question set me on a path to turn my darkness into light. My next question is ‘how can I spark wonder with my art and use art and coaching to help people feel seen, heard, and loved?’
