Blog / 2013 / Sucking My Thumb

January 8, 2013

A lot of things about living with a chronic illness make me want to paint portrait after portrait of myself, and that’s why I’m especially proud of my series and book, Crime Against Nature. It proves that I can do more than suck my thumb on the subject endometriosis.
