Using traditional methods of screen printing, most fine art prints are one-time renditions on canvas, wood and/or illustration board. Inspiration behind this body of work has been an eight year struggle with the diagnosis of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. The story, however, is much more in depth than two simple (and I mean it when I say "simple") diagnoses. Chronic illness took a healthy, independent, funny, personal trainer and performer into a heavily medicated, dependent, morose, barely-human human. The ride has not been fun and the only way to deal has been with art...when sitting, seeing, thinking and working was accessible because, for a long time, they were not. The silver lining has been getting back to my roots of creativity, protest, passion, confidence and something resembling self.
