I had surgery to implant both a spinal cord stimulator and dorsal root stimulator in my spine a week ago today. It’s been a rough first week of recovery and today is the first day I’ve felt able to art, but I’ve managed a whole portrait.
This is Lina from the Museum by Sktchy app painted in watercolour and finished with coloured pencils,
I love drawing things. These days I am rarely found without a pen, pencil or stylus in my hands. In my working life I spend a lot of time in meetings and classrooms, reading papers and strategies, so my home life provides a creative antidote to all that! I also have chronic pain, lots of it. I have scoliosis, fibromyalgia and CRPS, so my life is a balancing act, trying to balance work, which make me feel part of the real world, with pain, which is ever present, and art, which soothes my pain.
