I’m a very severely ill Australian artist. I spend my time fairly equally between M.E. patient advocacy and painting.
Before becoming ill I studied fine art for 4 years (at Perth TAFE and Claremont School of Art) and after that, design for 3 more (at Curtin University). (I didn’t get to finish my design degree though sadly due to M.E).
In 2005 I was lucky enough to have my first solo art exhibition. A few of my healthy friends and my family set the whole thing up etc. I just supplied the art. Of course I couldn’t attend due to illness, but I did get lots of great photos.
I’m slowly working towards another exhibition sometime before 2015 – hopefully.
