“Fragile Body, Strong Spirit”, 34 year old former preschool teacher, I have had Familial Hemiplegic Migraines that present with stroke-like symptoms since I was 6 years old. I also have Dandy Walker Malformation and Dysautonomia. I have always loved to draw. Since having to stop working, art has allowed me to communicate the feelings of living with multiple illnesses words can’t always convey. This piece was done on 9×12 Bristol paper with Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers.
