I want to make my mark with art, and let people understand what it’s like to have epilepsy. Before the seizure, it’s like a black hole in space where time stands still.
I feel waves of incredibly high and low emotion. I feel like I am floating on air on a rollercoaster ride, then my brain is like an egg being tossed around and thrown into a blender while trying to think straight. You want to think that it is a bad dream and that this invisible condition will go away. But knowing there is nothing you can do, you have to be strong and carry on with life the way it is.
Making art helps me, and makes me feel more relaxed and less stressed. I feel appreciated when my work is out there in the world.
