My work was once again selected to appear in The Body Electric—an annual health and humanities exhibit that is part of the International Conference on Residency Education (ICRE).
Initially launched during the 2014 International Conference, The Body Electric uses art as a way to critically engage with medicine and healthcare. The Body Electric annual digital art exhibit showcases an inspiring selection of visual art, in a range of media, including photography, drawing, painting, sculpture and video.

In August 2019 I had a couple articles about my embroidery work go up online.
The Cardiff Review published a portfolio of my anatomy embroideries with some of my writing about that body of work.
Action for M.E. published a short interview about my symptomatology embroideries.
Both these online magazines are based in the UK and I’m very happy to see my work getting attention over there!
I have a recent embroidery portfolio in Blanket Sea Magazine. It focuses on my symptomatology embroideries which explore my invisible ME/CFS symptoms. Blanket Sea is a literary and arts magazine dedicated to showcasing the work of artists and writers living with chronic illness, mental illness, and disability. You can find my portfolio
