In 2010, I became disabled with chronic vertigo, migraines, and fatigue, which ended my career as a technical writer. A year later, I was urged to find a creative outlet as my analytical writing mind was now useless to me, and I had a lot of time to fill each day. I began by drawing in coloring books, but soon desired to create my own art. I was clueless how to break open my creativity and could barely draw a stick figure. Despite my best efforts, I was completely frozen creatively, certain that I couldn't draw a straight line. Then, I discovered repetitive pattern drawing with India ink, which became my passion. And I found that once my creative spirit was freed, recognizable shapes began appearing in my art. It is my hope that sharing my art will inspire other chronically ill people to find their own path to the unique art expression that heals their soul and soothes their mind and body. *** Artwork was created using light-fast, archival India ink on 90 lb. acid-free paper, sealed with archival topcoat. Acrylic blocks held together by magnets. Block design was featured in the Museum of Modern Art. Archival wood mounting panels utilize a heat activated reversible conservator’s adhesive. Each piece has a slot in the back to hang the artwork. Matted artwork is hinge float on Standard matboard.
