Australia (Exhibiting Artist 2009)
I want to make reference in my art to the fact that I have epilepsy because it has such a profound effect on my imagination, visual senses, emotions, and on my perception and observation of everything around me.
What I would most like people to know about epilepsy is that it is a condition that effects and alters every aspect of human consciousness. It exposes someone who has epilepsy to states of perception that are experienced by relatively few of the overall population surrounding them.
