By exploring synesthesia and chronic pain, I create imagery that expresses the reconsideration of individual perception. You'll see work here made from both my own synesthetic experience and inspired by that of others, investigating nontraditional sensorial responses to sound, written language, time, emotions, pain, color, and concepts. The DIS/CLOSURE page showcases a collaboration with Ellen Rogers, in which we visualized, catalogued, and reflected on our struggles with chronic illness and pain. I also make some amusing things, because, that's who I am.
I'll be living in a southern Icelandic village for seven weeks this summer, as I have been accepted for an artist residency by Gullkistan Center for Creativity! To help bolster my funding, I'm selling some copies of my books and prints, as well as offering design services, at great rates. Why am I not doing a crowdsourcing campaign? I'm not a charity, creativity is essential, and while it's fantastic that great things of all kinds get funded that way, I'm skipping the labor and fees for both of us by going direct.
