About

Hello everyone, I’m so happy to be able to share my art with you. My inspiration is a blessing and a cruse: a neurological disorder known as Tourette's Syndrome. Living with Tourette's causes spasms, tics, bizarre thoughts and uncontrollable creativity. If you want to imagine what it’s like, I picture it like trying to keep a sack of puppies from wiggling; exhausting and impossible. My paintings are my disorder spilling out onto paper and canvas. They are often spastic and messy and hard for me to control. Tourette's doesn’t mean you’re insane but it can definitely drive you crazy. I welcome you to take home a little of my craziness. Please contact me if you’re interested in my work or learning more about Tourette's Syndrome.
