Featured Artist in Synaesthesia Magazine

I was recently featured in Synaesthesia magazine as their artist of the month. The piece focuses on the embroidery work I’ve done to illustrate my ME/CFS symptoms.

I was also the rocur (rotating curator) of @IAmSciArt on Twitter for a week in November and you can see more of my embroidery here (though these links will only work until May 2018). There are two threads, one on anatomy-themed embroideries, and the other on my symptomatology embroideries.

I’m currently working on a large anatomy-themed piece that you can check the progress on my Instagram.

Healthwise, I’m very slowly improving after a bit of a downturn in the fall because of a stomach flu. I’m still mostly housebound but have been able to drive myself to a few appointments and attend a few family gatherings. If you want to know more about ME/CFS I recommend watching the documentary Unrest, which is on iTunes and Netflix.

Last year Macarena Yanez of Makifotos did some amazing photos of me as an aside to my much-needed new promo pics. However, in between Maki opening her new photo studio, me doing a new edit of my poetry manuscript, my appendectomy, and life in general, Maki and I finally got it together to post some of the photos on my website.

Please visit Maki’s site and check out her various projects. Most of the photos you see on my site were a collaborative effort between myself, Maki, and Amanda Zinovich of A-Z makeup artistry.
