Artist statement: This series of artwork (titled Anatomy of the Writer) was created as a way to help process my experiences with traumatic injury, recovery, and adapting to life with chronic pain and limited mobility. The artwork was created using a variety of materials, including some of my medical images (like scans and x-rays), photography, and anatomical diagrams and images.
