A headache is kind of like being on an island by yourself. You are confined to this piece of land with no where to go. It is just like a headache being confined to being inside your head with no place to go.
For four years, I have been plagued with daily headaches. Relatively recently, I began to work through it with the use of drawing and found that the pain was alleviated. It is the energy and rhythm of the lines that helps relieve the pain. The dynamics of a headache are locked in a chaotic confinement. The fluidity of an India ink pen mimics the pain’s travel pattern in my head. This controlled system of mark-making contains my condition by turning an uncomfortable negative state into a creative positive one. And from this condition, it is taking the drawing into new areas of the unknown.
I am artist and photographer from Florida. My passion is art and photography. My drawings are of an energy with a rhythm of lines that help relieve the pain of headaches. This controlled system of mark-making contains my condition by turning an uncomfortable negative state into a creative positive one. I love to photograph nature, landscapes, sunsets, sunrises, beaches, and much more. I experience peace being surrounded by nature. I believe South Florida has so much to see on a daily basis that one could miss as life passes them by so I capture it with my photographs.
