If they could only talk (They Can)


Heather Thompson

I am an artist with several rare diseases after a sudden TBI in 2011. Adrenal Insufficiency, Chronic Migraines, POTS Dysautonomia, and Hypopituitarism have been a part of my life ever since, but so has the gift of art. I am one of approx 70 “acquired savants” worldwide. My story is available at This painting captures the moment that I began to integrate the left and right hemispheres of my brain. It is called, “If they could only talk (They Can)” – Mixed Media on Wood.
