Announcing My Upcoming Solo Show: Making the Invisible, Visible

Save the date!!! My solo show is coming up soon, Friday, Nov 4, 5-7pm, Mezzanine Gallery! I would love to see your faces there!

As many of you know, over the past 14 years, I have endured discrimination, harassment, broken relationships, strained friendships, and unemployment due to migraine. I am so thankful to have emerged on the other side as healthy and functional, but it has taken a really long time to get here, and loads of support from my family and friends.

I began this series after suffering some setbacks with my migraines. I had been doing well, but then Covid, teaching online, producing videos on a regular basis, and dealing with discrimination and an extremely stressful situation at my job was ultimately too much and my migraines got significantly worse again.
I had forgotten how debilitating they could be. And it's not just about the physical pain, but also the frustration at feeling shut in, trapped, and unable to live life as you want when you are stuck at home, under the covers, hidden in the dark. Happily, my migraines have become more manageable although they still continue to flare up. I sincerely believe that this project has helped me cope in many ways, and I hope that if you are a migraine sufferer, that seeing this works helps provide a feeling of solidarity and understanding to our so often misunderstood condition!!
