Artist Statement
At age eight I was diagnosed with dyslexia.  I remember having reading tutors for years afterwards, but other than that it was a reading disability, I never can recall being told what it was or why I had it.   

Recently I have come to learn about the theory of disorientation in relation to dyslexia.  The theory being that at an early age “picture” thinkers (non-verbal as opposed to verbal thinkers) become confounded while reading when confronted by words that they do not have direct visual pictures for.  This does not occur for all picture thinkers, but dyslexics are the ones who panic due to confusion and then disorient.  No two dyslexics have identical reactions, but typically characteristics of perceptual distortion or disorientation are scrambling of letters which causes the misspelling of words; words are either omitted or perceived out of proper sequence; dizziness while reading; difficulty telling or being on time; poor handwriting; etc… 

Without knowing it, my visual art practice directly relates to both my need for spatial order in reaction to the symptoms of disorientation, as well as an embracing of the all too familiar states of disorientation that I’ve dealt with most of my life.
