About my art
CREATING TO COMFORT.
After losing both my hearing, body function and level of vision in 2020, art became a part of my physical recovery. I started with tracing things digitally, at the time I couldn’t even hold a pen and sign my name properly. Over time I transferred to sketches, then charcoal and slowly paints, every new medium comes with new challenges. Mostly I create from bed or in short sessions. My experiences have slowly shown up in my art, from the contrast I use, the light effects I’m obsessed with, the softness and slight blur of things. Art is slowly giving me a way to show people the way I now see the world and explain things I don’t always have the words for.
Hiya, i’m SO glad YOU’RE HERE
Your resident constantly confused Deafie, with a love for capturing the softness of life admist the harshness.
JustSoElina has always been a hub for creative outlet, what started as a YouTube channel, branched into a blog after I became bedbound at 14. I went from hiding my illness online completely to sharing my journey getting a diagnosis of Ehlers Danlos Sydrome – HEDS. Getting involved in online advocacy and talking about the dismissal of young people with chronic illness in the medical system and community. And now working in co design as a health consumer representative. Studying Art and Art Therapy online. It’s constantly evolving into what I feel i needed at the time and what I feel will reach others figuring out life in chronically Ill bodies best.
Creativity holds no bounds, thus here is a collection of my crazy. I hope you stick around and find some comfort in it.
