Bio

Today is October 5th and  I have been stuck sitting in this chair for 22 days now with a broken ankle and swelling issues. I also have spent the last 10 years battling a Lyme induced autoimmune disease so I am no stranger to disability. Since I broke my ankle I spend my days reading, cuddling my dogs, and working on the Sketchbook Project Moleskin.

I have had only 2 showers in 22 days and can only be up for about 10 minuets before the swelling in my leg starts to get really painful and my toes turn lovely shades of red and purple. I have good days, like today :~), and bad days like yesterday when I cried a lot :~(

The sketchbook project has been a real life saver for me as it gives me the ability to keep my creative juices flowing even while immobile. It has been a great emotional outlet and I have really enjoyed meeting all the other artists involved on the Art House Co-op website's Sketchbook Project page. I love reading the comments and seeing all the great artwork.

There are almost 20,000 sketchbooks out there so today when I saw that my gouache self portrait was one of the artworks featured on the front page of the Art House Co-op's website I was very honored and it really cheered me up.

Linda Has been battling Advanced Neurological Lyme Disease for 10 years. The creative process has been a powerful healing force in her life.

hi your 'crossing the desert' is just beautiful. Ive just joined the project -[only discovered it during the week,] and read the Moleskin test page. How do you manage the paper, sounds like its quite hard to use, or very light and also hard to get the image to show, on. Are you all replacing the paper or what techniques do you find work well for you? thanks for your inspiring work R
