"I want to show my work because so many people have commented over the years that it is quite unique. I have drawn since I was very young. I noticed that my output of creative work was higher after a seizure. The work was often bigger in size and I used brighter colours. As I have been placed on strong medication in adulthood, my work is more consistent and the colours more earthy. There is still a hint of the rhythm of my childhood drawings in my adult work. If there is any truth to a link between epilepsy and artistic uniqueness I would like to be part of the discovery. Art is my life, epilepsy is a part of that life; it would make sense that the two have influenced one another at some point.  If I could tell other people just one thing about epilepsy, it would be I have learned to live with it. It is not demonic possession, witch craft or evil. It is a neurological disorder and can be successfully treated with medication. It is not to be feared. The people who have it can live long healthy normal lives. It should not be a taboo subject, nor should there be prejudice against those who have it."
