This is a 5 color reduction print from an "Eco Printing Plate". I've used human anatomy as my subject matter in the past, so suffering a concussion brought a bitter-sweet opportunity to focus my art on the brain. This image makes it easier for me to explain what a blow to the head can feel like.
About the Artist
I, like most artistic people I imagine, tend to express my art in a manner that is consistent with my life experiences, strengths, personality, etc. Although my art has usually played second fiddle, I've witnessed the shape and details of my art (and myself) evolve over the years as I layer on more life. Prior to my injury in August of 2021 (mTBI) my art went through a free spirited stage before zeroing in on the detailed and analytical approach you see now. In parallel to that, I started my life as a goofball, worked myself into an Olympic Discus Thrower, then returned to university and became a Physical Therapist. In art and life, I've always been attracted to the creative and clever, so I enjoy hiding some fun little nugget in my art for the viewer to discover. Since my injury, both myself and my art are in a kind of limbo; waiting for the dust to settle while also trying to clean things up, find some new inspiration and move on to what’s next.
