THE GOOD GIRL CONFESSIONAL PODCAST

Our special guest is Justine Martin, who speaks with Sandy about her successful corporate life being turned upside down in 2011 when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Since then, she has battled three cancers and overcome a long list of serious medical conditions. Rather than allowing her hardship to overcome her, she has used it as a platform to inspire and make a difference in the lives of others.

"In episode 71, I speak with inspirational speaker, artist and soon-to-be author, Justine Martin. Her successful corporate life was turned upside down in 2011 when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Since then, she has battled three cancers and overcome a long list of serious medical conditions. Rather than allowing her hardship to overcome her, she has used it as a platform to inspire and make a difference in the lives of others. Her focus on living every day to the fullest, and not wasting the most precious resource we all have... time! This is an inspiring podcast you do not want to miss!"

Art and MS with Justine Martin with MS Understood

July 2021

Today on MS Understood we chat with public speaker, resilience coach, artist and medical advocate Justine Martin. We talk about how her life has done a complete 180 since diagnosis, we speak about how art has changed her life, and so much more. I seriously loved her answer to my "what's been the best thing to happen to you because of your MS?', so make sure to stick around to the end of the episode to hear that.

2017 ADEC EXHIBITION BRUNSWICK VICTORIA

December 2017

On the 17th of December I had the honour of talking at the ADEC exhibition in Melbourne. My painting was featured on the front cover of their catalogue. I was asked to speak on my journey into the art world. It was such a pleasure and honour. I was very fortunate to win the 2017 ADEC award for this personal piece called ‘Hidden Pieces’ which is a smaller replicate of a piece I painted for my personal collection. It is my life. I am the turtle. Swinging through the ocean. Only forwards not backwards. The bright colour shell is my personality, my bright bubbly personality, I don’t do beige. There are hidden jig saw pieces in this artwork. These represent the missing pieces to finding a cure to Cancer and MS. I feel very humbled to receive such an award. Thank you. 🎨🎨🎨🎨
