In recent years I have expressed myself creatively through a photograph. Since the pandemic, I haven’t been able to get out and use my camera, so I decided to explore a medium I haven’t used since art school.
Epilepsy and mental health go hand-in-hand. I’ve been using mixed media drawings to process the complex emotions I’ve been dealing with for many years.
I use colored pencils, markers, and acrylic paint to create a fairly new type of art therapy called “Neurographic Art.” The difference between my neurographic art is I always have a recognizable subject, such as sunflowers. Every time lines intersect, I soften the harsh crossing by smoothing them out so they look like neurons in your Brain.
I am pleased to share these selected four works from my Neurographic Art series as part of my larger art therapy collection.
