This page is part of the culmination of my thesis project for my BFA at Pacific Northwest College of Art, in General Fine Arts.
The work of this project is based on my experiences becoming suddenly paralyzed in December of 2010, due to acute Transverse Myelitis, a neurological disorder in which the body attacks its own spinal cord. A more complete background story, as well as some of the process and conceptual elements that tie the images together, can be found under "Artist Statement" in the menu above.
One of my driving incentives to do this project was to put my story out into the world. This website is a part of that outreach. I have created a collection of eighteen paintings, which can be viewed on this site under "The Paintings" above, or if you would like to download a copy for a Kindle™ device or purchase a printed paperback booklet, you can do so under "Order the Book" above.
