2015 – Falling down the rabbit hole

These drawings are the first part of a series created around the theme of emerging chronic illness.  In essence I fell through the rabbit hole into a new world that retained all of the physical attributes of the old one.  The difference was me.  The challenge became navigating this new world that was both familiar and totally alien, making me ill at every turn, and still trying to hang on to the life I had built.  Over a period of time though I had to let go of that life, of things I perceived to be essential parts of me.  Art became the means of a discussion with myself about how my life changed and how to move forward.
