"Through having epilepsy my creativity and artwork changed dramatically. I have always used the creation of artwork as a tool for self analysis and discovery. I hope that the work the I have created during the time that I had epilepsy coveys the inner struggle that I was going through in coming to terms with my epilepsy. I feel that there is, emotionally so much more that can be said with images and artwork than words. This is the only way I can properly articulate the experience of having epilepsy for me. I would like for it to be better understood that people with epilepsy are just normal people that deal with seizures."
