In August 2019 I had a couple articles about my embroidery work go up online.
First, The Cardiff Review published a portfolio of my anatomy embroideries with some of my writing about that body of work.
Second, Action for M.E. published a short interview about my symptomatology embroideries.

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 here.
