About this work:
“Engagement in creative expression can transport the artist from a dark place to one of color, form, and joy. This happened to me. As I began to suffer severe spinal pain and sciatica which were not helped by medications, I started drawing with felt-tipped markers on paper at times when the pain was at its worst.
The involvement with my art was so engrossing that the pain, while present, was ignored. Art helped me greatly—so much so that I could call this exhibit “Art: A Hedge against Pain.””
