There was a time when I tried to keep my disabilities to myself. That is, until it was nearly impossible to cover up my forgetfulness, poor organization, distractibility, and depression. I finally came out of the closet, determined to live my life to the best of my ability, with my impairments. Instead of hiding them, I embraced them. Instead of making excuses for them I prided myself in having them.

digital assemblage (2010)


I created a piece of art with the following inscription: “My hidden disabilities aren’t so hidden anymore. Neither are my strenghts." All of my artwork illustrates this point. To the “average” person, my message is: ”say what you will about my cognitive limitations, but try to create artworkyourself. It's not as easy as it looks. But it is for me!" The bottom line for we artists with epilepsy is to focus and play on our strengths instead of our weaknesses for our own sake as well as for educating the public.
