About

Life Inflamed is a series of drawings about chronic pain. Last year I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which introduced constant pain into my life. I started to draw to distract myself. As my right arm was stiff and hurting I had to draw with my left. The forms and shapes in each drawing reveal how much I could move my arm on any given day. The drawings have changed over time as my left hand gets better at this and as my condition improves. You can see this evolution in the series.
