Golding’s art was one of 60 pieces selected by ARISE, a center of independent living, for its 2013 anthology which displays the creative work of individuals with disabilities in Central New York.

A 71-year-old wife, mother and grandmother, Golding uses art to help her cope with her multiple sclerosis.

Her work has appeared in the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
